Fixing the U.S. Constitution: What Needs Changing, How, and Why with Thomas J. Davis

March 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

FREE

The U.S. Constitution set as its primary purpose “to form a more perfect Union,” and ever since its drafting, often raucous calls have demanded changing its provisions or processes to “perfect” that Union. Perennially heated arguments have attached to how changes were to occur and what changes should be. What needs fixing has been a question for every generation since 1789. Exploring what has changed over time and why, opens perspectives on calls today to change the nation’s fundamental and organic law. This program is being co-hosted by Coolidge Public Library.
