China Town Hall

The Honorable Condoleezza Rice Former Secretary of State and National Security Advisor

Illinois Central College Chinese Language Institute and Peoria Area World Affairs Council will co-host the 12th annual China Town Hall event, a one hundred-city webcast featuring former Secretary of State and National Security Advisor, Condoleezza Rice.

The local, live webcast takes place Tuesday, October 9 from 4:45 to 7:30 pm in the Arbor Hall Auditorium, Room 111, on the ICC Peoria Campus, located at 5407 N. University St., Peoria. Chinese tea will be served. Admission is free and open to the public.

The national event is presented by the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations with a goal to engage in a conversation on China and the complex U.S.-China relationship, as well as its influence on the U.S. economy, policies, and security.

The event has two components: a webcast hosted by Stephen A. Orlins, President of the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations, at approximately one hundred venues nationwide and Dr. Condoleezza Rice, as well as an on-site China specialist and moderator. ICC Assistant Professor of History Stan Mendenhall will moderate the event at the Peoria location. In addition, Illinois Soybean Association member, Rob Shaffer, a soybean farmer from Chenoa, Ill, will provide some remarks about trade with China and the impacts of the tariffs.
