ADVISORY: Experts Review Landscape of This Supreme Court Term

Washington, D.C. — 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. On Thursday, January 7, the Center for American Progress will convene a panel discussion to review the landscape of upcoming Supreme Court cases, what is at stake this year, and what we can expect in the coming months.

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.

Members of the press are welcome to attend this event by RSVPing here.
