SDPB to host SD Focus Childcare Crisis Town Hall Oct. 3


Join Jackie Hendry as she hosts the South Dakota Focus Childcare Crisis Town Hall live from SDPB's Black Hills and Sioux Falls studios on Tuesday, Oct. 3 at 7 p.m. CST/6 p.m. MST.

The event is free, but seating is limited. Sign up to attend in Sioux Falls here, and sign up to attend in Rapid City here.

SDPB will also stream it online on, and on the SDPB Facebook and YouTube pages.

The future for South Dakota Focus will include town hall-style events, which will involve a handful of meetings related to this season to encourage community conversation. Town hall discussions will offer an opportunity to connect our Sioux Falls and Rapid City spaces with our statewide audience and bring experts and the community together to discuss childcare challenges. South Dakota Focus premieres Thursday, Sept. 28 at 8 p.m. CST/7 p.m. MST on SDPB1, and repeats the following Sunday. Focus generally airs the last Thursday of the month.

“My big hope from the season and future seasons is that my work can be used for showing a path to make our state as great as it can be.” - Jackie Hendry, SD Focus Host
