As the Supreme Court term heads toward the halfway mark, a large number of high-stakes cases will produce long-lasting consequences for how “equal justice under law” is defined and achieved. Each case alone threatens big changes in the lives of everyday Americans. Together, they could result in a dramatic, conservative shift in the law and a significant expansion in the Court’s role—from increasing conservative political power; to further depriving women’s access to health care; to undermining workers’ rights and immigration rights; to eliminating diversity in higher education, this is a critical year for political, civil, and individual rights at the Supreme Court.
Please join the Center for American Progress for a panel discussion on what is at stake at the Supreme Court this year and what we can expect in the coming months.
