What is a Telephone Town Hall?

What is a Telephone Town Hall? A Telephone Town Hall is your opportunity to speak live with a panel of experts as they  discuss the heroin and opioid epidemic facing the state. It is a LIVE 90-minute event hosted by Sen. Gene Yaw and the Senate Republican Caucus, designed to give you the opportunity to share your stories and ask them questions about the current epidemic.

How does it work?  On the night of the Telephone Town Hall events, residents of the designated region will receive a phone call with a custom message inviting them to “stay on the line” to participate.  Instructions will be given to press the * key and the 3 key on your phone to ask a question from the panelists.    Think of the Telephone Town Hall event as being similar in format to a radio talk show.

How do I participate?  You may participate in one of three ways:

  1. You may sign up here by entering your cell or land line phone number and email
  2. You may text the keyword “talkheroin” (be sure to enter as one word, with no space) to the number 828282
  3. You may listen to the live streaming at https://vekeo.com/a-commonwealth-crisis/

What happens if I miss the phone call? No worries! We will leave a voice mail with a call back number to join the event or you can go to https://www.vekeo.com/a-commonwealth-crisis and listen to a live stream.

What happens if I miss the event? Not a problem! We’ll post the event audio and highlights to this page within 2 days so you can listen to the audio and catch up on what you missed.

Is there a cost to participate? No. These events are put on as a public service by the Pennsylvania State Senate Republican Caucus and are totally free to participate.

Sponsored by the Senate Republican Caucus, this series of regional Telephone Town Halls highlights the statewide public health crisis of Heroin and Opioid abuse in Pennsylvania and connects listeners with local experts to provide education and assistance. The Telephone Town Hall services for A Commonwealth Crisis Event Series are provided in partnership with Broadnet.  For more information visit www.broadnet.com.
