Join the Northern Colorado Chapter for their annual meeting on Wednesday, December 15, in observance of Bill of Rights Day. It will be held in the Coloradoan Community Meeting Room, 1300 Riverside Ave., in Fort Collins, from 7 to 9 p.m. The event is open to the public and admission is FREE.
CSU Professor Courtenay Daum is the featured speaker. Her talk is titled, “Roberts Supreme Court Comes of Age: How Did We Get Here and Where Are We Going?” Prof. Daum‘s expertise is in the field of public law, and she has given courses in constitutional law and civil liberties. Her current interests include the role of federalism in Supreme Court decisions.
In addition to tracing “how we got here,” Prof. Daum will look at a few Roberts Court decisions for discussion, including: Race and the Court; Women’s Rights and the Court; Second Amendment cases (gun ownership); and Campaign Financing and Elections (including Citizens United v. FEC).
Roy Bath, chair of the local ACLU group said, “we invite everyone to come and discuss these vital issues on Bill of Rights Day with Prof. Daum and with each other. There is no preconceived or partisan agenda – rather, our hope is for an informed discussion of decisions by the Supreme Court which will affect all of us far into the future.”
