Recently our country has struggled to respond to a pandemic, systemic racism, extreme political polarization, and even a deadly insurrection attempt. Are the events of the past year manifestations of deep dysfunction in our political system? Are we experiencing constitution-level problems that require a constitution-level solution?
This webinar will consider whether it is time for Americans to engage in “constitutional politics.” What would it mean to amend the Constitution in the 21st century? How might a push for constitutional politics help Americans bridge their divides? Our speakers will offer ideas about whether and how the American people should revisit and amend our fundamental charter. We will use a specific amendment proposal by American Promise as a springboard for discussing the idea of constitutional politics more generally. The proposed amendment aims to revive the sovereignty of the people by addressing the disproportionate power of money in our political system.
