CRANFORD—China’s rapid development and Sino-American relations have a direct impact on the lives of just about everyone in the United States. “China Town Hall: Local Connections, National Reflections” is a national day of programming designed to provide Americans across the United States and beyond the opportunity to discuss these issues with leading experts.

The “China Town Hall” will be held locally on Monday, Oct. 28, at 6:45 p.m. in the Cranford Community Center. The Community Center is located at 220 Walnut Avenue. The National Committee on United States-China Relations (NCUSCR) will present this program, which will feature a live Webcast with Madeleine Albright, the 64th U.S. Secretary of State.

The Webcast will be followed by an in-person presentation by Dr. Min Jiang, whose topic will be “The Internet and Freedom of Speech in China.” Dr. Jiang is an associate professor of communication at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and an affiliate researcher at the Center for Global Communication Studies, University of Pennsylvania.

Admission to the program is free and all are welcome. The program is sponsored by Cranford High School and the Cranford Public Library.
