Activism and the Constitution

“Raising Issues About Citizens, Activism and the Constitution”

Friday, September 18, 2015Orchard Suite, University Union
3:00pm-4:00pm   Sacramento State
Dr. Duane Campbell, Sacramento State Professor Emeritus of Bilingual/Multicultural Education, will address how activism, action, and reflection are essential to efforts to protect, defend and extend our democracy. The courts alone will not protect our democracy, especially in light of the Supreme Court rulings on Citizens United, the Voting Rights Act and the rise of Donald Trump.  Thus, it falls to each generation to protect democracy – are you going to be part of the problem or part of the solution? 
Reception to follow after the talk. Sponsored by:The Serna Center
Duane Campbell is the electoral chair of the Sacramento Progressive Alliance and the former chair of Democratic Socialists of America. Event is part of the Constitution Week program at Sac State.
