How to Read the Constitution and Why w/ Special Guest Kim Wehle
The Constitution is the most significant document in America. But do you fully understand what this valuable document means to you? Join us as legal expert and educator Kimberly Wehle spells out in clear, simple, and commonsense terms what is in the Constitution, and most importantly, what it means. She will discuss how the Constitution’s protections are eroding - not only in express terms but by virtue of the many legal and social norms that no longer shore up its legitimacy - and why it has never been more important than now for all Americans to know how our Constitution works - and why, it is important that we maintain its protections.
Sister Jenna will interview Kim and will invite the audience for Questions and Answers. The Talk will be followed by a book signing with Kimberly Wehle. Not to be Missed!
