Are Illinois residents able to readily and fairly access healthcare and education? Is there equal opportunity for economic growth?
Explore these topics and more with NPR Illinois at the Election 2018: Seeking Solutions Forum in Carbondale, Illinois at The Varsity Center. The forum is August 30th with light refreshments being served at 5:30 PM and the discussion beginning at 6.

Last year NPR Illinois toured the state in partnership with NPR member stations to hear how the two-year state budget impasse impacted communities in Illinois. The adoption of a budget provided some clarity for those affected but many challenges remain.
This year, we aim to seek solutions to many of the fiscal problems that persist and discuss the prominent issues in the 2018 elections.
Watch this Illinois Issues Forum from Naperville. Our 2018 election coverage continues with a discussion of economic development in the collar counties of Chicago and how the state issues influence their well-being.
This forum is produced and hosted by NPR Illinois with support provided by AARP Illinois.
