Constitution Day - System-Wide Public Deliberation
Thursday, 17 September, 2020
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
SUNY Applied Learning is sponsoring a free system-wide event this Constitution Day, Thursday, September 17, 2020 from 4pm to 6pm. The event centers on the timely topic of voting in the United States --its history, the complexities and problems in the system, and its future. Organized in the form of public deliberation, this timely discussion is particularly important given the 2020 presidential election is less than two months away.
Please register for this zoom session: https://sunycpd.eventsair.com/constday20/reg/Site/Register
Students from diverse backgrounds will have the opportunity to meet with other students in colleges throughout the system to discuss these topics in small groups via Zoom. Individuals will have time to express their experiences and perspectives as well as be thoughtful listeners. All groups will come back to a general session once they have discussed the various perspectives in the smaller groups.
The materials and concept of this session have been developed by the National Issues Forum Institute in conjunction with the Kettering Foundation.
This announcement comes as a coordinated effort of Global Studies and Cultural Affairs. Questions may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
“Voting and participating in the democratic process are key. The vote is the most powerful nonviolent change agent you have in a democratic society. You must use it because it is not guaranteed. You can lose it.” (Final words of John Lewis published posthumously July 30, 2020)
