The People’s Constitution: Forum And Discussion

The People’s Constitution: Forum And Discussion

The People’s Constitution675

Wilfred U. Codrington III discusses his new book, The People’s Constitution: 200 Years, 27 Amendments, and the Promise of a More Perfect Union

Prof. Codrington teaches at Brooklyn Law School, is a fellow at the Brennan Center, and is a member of the NYSBA Task Force on Voting Rights and Democracy.
This program will be moderated by Jerry H. Goldfeder, Special Counsel at Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP and Chair of the Task Force on Voting Rights and Democracy.

This forum will examine the history of constitutional amendments and the tension between the overall progressive arc of constitutional change. The speaker will explore themes discussed in the book and how the American people have taken an imperfect constitution — the product of compromises and an artifact of its time — and made it more democratic.
