Constitution Day features address by Prof. Bruce Ledewitz
Professor Bruce Ledewitz will be a featured speaker during Robert Morris University's Constitution and Citizenship Day on Monday, Sept. 17. His talk, Taking the Threat to Democracy Seriously: The Truth/Justice/ Democracy Initiative, will focus on the breakdown in American political discourse and efforts to combat the death of truth.
Ledewitz will discuss reintroducing the concept of justice in a skeptical and relativistic age, his personal work in this area, and plans for a bipartisan caucus of American law professors to oppose political abuses, from gerrymandering to partisan misuse of presidential impeachment.
Saying that Americans must be "the change we want to see," Ledewitz will share inspiring information about a truth/justice/democracy initiative and other efforts to combat challenges to the U.S. Constitution's project of self-government.
