American Democracy Television (ADTV)

American Democracy Television

The American Democracy Television virtual network provides quality, timely and flexible video programs that public, education and government channels, public access stations, statewide networks and others can use to engage citizens with their representative government.

Through a nonpartisan alliance of civic education groups, ADTV offers a series of free programs in all broadcast formats. Topics include:

  • How representative democracy works at the local, state and national level
  • How compromise and disagreement are an important part of our system of democracy
  • How citizens' ideas and special interests are represented

American Democracy Television is made possible by the Alliance for Representative Democracy, a partnership combining the resources of: The National Conference of State Legislatures, Trust for Representative Democracy, the Center for Civic Education and the Center on Congress at Indiana University.

This project is funded by the U.S. Department of Education under the Education for Democracy Act approved by the U.S. Congress.
