“Constitution 101” will be the topic presented by Robert Leming, at the Monday, April 2 Lunch with the League to be held at St John’s Episcopal Church, 212 South Green Street, noon to 1 pm. Leming is National Director of the “We the People Program” for the Center for Civic Education and Professor of Graduate Studies at Kansas State University.
Understanding the Constitution—its history, its role in shaping American life and politics, and its relevance today—is essential for anyone who wants to be a better-informed voter, leader or citizen. Leming teaches an in-depth six-part course beginning with the Constitution’s philosophical and historical foundations through challenges our constitutional democracy faces today.
The public is invited to come learn more about the program and ways in which the League, perhaps with other civic groups, might work to bring this program to Montgomery County.
The Lunch with the League series is conducted monthly noon to 1 p.m. in the Ambrose Whitlock Parish Hall of St. John’s Episcopal Church, 212 S. Green, as a free public informational service provided by the League of Women Voters. Attendees should bring their own sack lunch and reservations are not required.
