Next ‘Teen Connection’ to focus on Hmong teenagers in Wisconsin
Public Television’s Teen Connection program — broadcast from right here on campus — will present an episode focusing on Hmong teenagers at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 19. The show will explore the cultural identity of Wisconsin’s Hmong teens, and examine how they find balance between their ancestral culture and American cultural norms. The live, call-in program will feature a panel of Hmong teens and adult experts, including Wa Yia Thao, president of the Wisconsin United Coalition of Mutual Assistance Associations, Inc., and Maiko Katie Thao, a high school counselor with the Green Bay School District. Teen Connection is co-produced by NEWIST/CESA 7, Educational TV Productions of Northeast Wisconsin (ETP-NEW) and Wisconsin Public Television. It will air live statewide at 7 p.m. on WPT and MPTV in Milwaukee. For more information visit http://wpt.org/teenconnection/ or http://www.facebook.com/WisconsinTeenConnection.
