Here is an invitation to participate in a Constitution Town Hall on Saturday January 30, 2010. This event, entitled “ Reviving the Constitution”, is sponsored by Hillsdale College’s Allan P. Kirby, Jr. Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship.
There are two ways you can participate in the Constitutional Town Hall on January 30. You can attend in person in Chantilly, Virginia, or you can participate online by viewing a live video stream.
The seminar will run from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Town Hall sessions include presentations on the following topics:
· The Declaration of Independence and the Principles of Free Government
· The American Constitution
· The Constitution and the Civil War
· The Progressive attack on the Constitution
· American Government Today and What Citizens Can Do to Revive the Constitution
The Kirby Center, located in Washington D.C., was launched in 2008 to teach and promote the principles and practices of American constitutionalism in the nation’s capital and nationwide. It is seeking with this event to revive a town hall tradition in which enduring principles are the focal point of conversation.
Town Hall lecturers feature leading constitutional scholars including Hillsdale College President Larry P. Arnn, and they will leave ample time for questions from both in-person and on-line participants.
All participants can download a free Town Hall reading packet. Registration for the event is simple. Go to the Kirby Center Web site (www.thekirbycenter.org), where you will be directed to enter your name and e-mail address if you wish to watch online on January 30.
