The Westminster Town Hall Forum is Minnesota's longest-running national speaker series. Since 1980, we have invited "speakers of conscience to address the issues of the day, from an ethical perspective."

The Forum is provided as a community service, connecting people in our region to some of the most esteemed voices in the world. All of our programs are free and open to the public, both in-person and online. There is never any charge to attend a Forum, and they are also broadcast statewide on Minnesota Public Radio.

Nearly 85% of our funding comes from individual supporters. Individuals cover the vast majority of speaker fees, event costs, and the budget for our small staff. 

Our more than 300 speakers have included Bryan Stevenson, Elie Wiesel, Marian Wright Edelman, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Amy Tan, Gwen Ifill, David McCullough, James Forman, Jr., and Bill McKibben, just to name just a few.

We believe ideas matter. We believe Minnesota deserves a world-class speaker series focused on the ethics, racial justice, and diversity of thought. We believe all people should have access to important ideas and great speakers. 

We need your help to keep these incredible programs free and accessible to all. 

Your gift of any amount makes a difference. Help us keep this critical Minnesota institution thriving and connecting with new audiences. Make a gift today.
