Quiet Revolution

12:00 - 1:30 PM EDT

Alliance for Justice has produced a provocative short documentary entitled Quiet Revolution. Narrated by Emmy award-winning actor Bradley Whitford, the film features U.S. Senator Barack Obama and describes how an increasingly influential movement on the far right has waged a sustained war on the Constitution as we know it. Ultra-conservative politicians, judges, professors, and activists would overturn decades of precedent to eviscerate popular laws protecting workers, consumers, and public health, expand executive power at the expense of basic civil liberties, and impose a narrow social agenda on the rest of the body politic.

Lunch will be served at 11:30am.

Nan Aron, President, Alliance for Justice
Dawn Johnsen, Professor of Law and Ira C. Batman Faculty Fellow, Indiana University School of Law
Jamie Raskin, Professor of Law and Director of the Law and Government Program, Washington College of Law
