Presenting student organizations: American Constitution Society

Join ACS and Professors Ginsburg, Huq, and Morse for a broad-ranging discussion on the state of American democracy from 30,000 feet, looking holistically at judicial, legislative, and attitudinal changes in the past years and the role they have played in eroding the strength of democracy and democratic norms.

 

This convening is open to all invitees who are compliant with UChicago vaccination requirements and, because of ongoing health risks, particularly to the unvaccinated, participants are expected to adopt the risk mitigation measures (masking and social distancing, etc.) appropriate to their vaccination status as advised by public health officials or to their individual vulnerabilities as advised by a medical professional. Public convening may not be safe for all and carries a risk for contracting COVID-19, particularly for those unvaccinated. Participants will not know the vaccination status of others and should follow appropriate risk mitigation measures.

This is a mask-optional convening. We strongly encourage unvaccinated individuals and those preferring to wear masks to do so.
