The Political Science Club of Fort Lewis College is hosting Kathleen Hynes, Ph.D., volunteer speaker for the ACLU of Colorado to explore these questions and more:
Why is it some individuals in the U.S. have more protected civil rights than others when our Bill of Rights says all persons are entitled to equal protection and due process?
Why did poor people charged with a felony not have the right to an attorney until 1963? Why did free speech get extended to juveniles in 1969? How did Colorado finally end debtors’ prisons in 2014?
WHEN: Wednesday, February 28th, 6:30–7:30pm
WHERE: Noble Hall, Room 125, Fort Lewis College, Durango, CO
This event is free and open to the public.
