[Past Event] Constitution in Flux | In-Person (Gentrain, MPC)

Course Description:

The new conservative majority on the Supreme Court, the deadlocked Congress, and the expanding presidency are changing the balance of power among the three branches of government. What do “we the people” stand to gain or lose in this rebalancing? Some see these changes as established constitutional rights and principles being reversed or diminished, while others view this trend as a long-awaited correction of the Court’s past erroneous decisions and misinterpretations. Join us as we explore these changes and imagine where they will lead our Constitutional democracy in the future.
