Challenges in American Democracy; With Liberty and Justice for All?

What challenges do Americans see in our society and our system of government? Many Americans today are wondering whether their experiment in self-government is really working. The 2020 Annual Conference for Teachers in Civics, Law, and Government, addresses the tensions that define modern American life. It offers resources dealing with current challenges to individual liberties, the legal system, the electoral system, and fundamental democratic institutions. The 2020 conference offers teachers an opportunity to discuss how to explain our country’s current challenges and restore civic capital to students with other teachers and how we can help fulfill the democratic vision.

The Constitutional Democracy Project’s Professional Development Conference for Teachers in Civics, Law, and Government brings together teachers, professors, lawyers, judges, civic leaders, cultural institution scholars, civic education specialists, and others to highlight best practices for teaching young people awareness of the law, the legal system, and their rights and responsibilities as engaged citizens.  REGISTER HERE
