Williamsburg Library Theatre, 515 Scotland Street, Williamsburg
Sponsored by William & Mary Law School Constitutional Conversations featuring Bill White, Colonial Williamsburg Foundation; Meg Heubeck, UVa Center for Politics; Kelly Carmichael Booz, Center for the Constitution at James Madison's Montpelier.
Full Description
Constitutional Conversations is a non-partisan, community-based education project designed to send law students into the community to educate citizens about their civic rights and duties.

The goal is to inspire students and adults, alike, to become active participants in the democratic process. Instruction in the history and development of our fundamental Constitutional rights is an indispensable foundation for effective civics training for all Americans. It also serves as the basis for the unique engine of human change.

Please join us in our effort to start a national conversation about the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Together, we can shape the future of our nation's Constitutional narrative.
