This session is the inaugural of a series of Conversations in which we will explore current constitutional topics in-depth, anchoring them in the context of historical constitutional developments. These Constitutional Conversations are designed to foster discussion with an expert and explore your questions and curiosity on this week’s topic through the interactive Q&A.

We’ll begin our first installment exploring constitutional law and how the Constitution impacts voting and elections - particularly as it relates to the upcoming election. Historically, we can look at the importance of representation in democratic republics - from ancient Athens to early American colonies to today - and the pivotal role of previously disenfranchised African Americans and women, who were granted suffrage in the 15th and 19th amendments, respectively. This historical context will be the foundation for a live discussion of present-day issues of voting and representation in America.

Led by the President of the nation's Center for Civic Education, Christopher R. Riano, Esq, this conversation is set to deepen your understanding of the Constitution and its role in elections today. Bring your curious mind and questions as we engage in a conversation about the role elections and voting play in a representative democracy, and the importance of representation to a vibrant civic discourse.

Christopher R. Riano is the President of the nation's Center for Civic Education, America's largest and most prestigious constitutional law and civic education organization dedicated to promoting an enlightened and responsible citizenry committed to democratic principles and actively engaged in the practice of civic virtue both in America and around the globe. He also serves as a Lecturer in Constitutional Law and Government at Columbia University, where he focuses his teaching and writing on comparative constitutionalism, constitutional jurisprudence, and the importance of making constitutional law accessible to as many people as possible.

This conversation is suitable for all ages

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.
