[PAST EVENT] 2011 Constitution Day Program: "Why Civic Education is Essential to a Healthy Democracy"

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.
