“How the Constitution Center is Encouraging Dialogue Outside the Beltway”

In these polarized times, the National Constitution Center is the one institution in America that is bringing together citizens of different perspectives for civil dialogue about the Constitution. With its Town Hall programs, nationally syndicated podcasts, an exciting online interactive exhibit tracing the spread of American liberties across the globe, and civic education initiatives, the Constitution Center is fulfilling its Congressional mandate: “to disseminate information about the U.S. Constitution on a non-partisan basis.” In addition, at the Museum of We the People, the Constitution Center is a destination for visitors across America where they can see one of the twelve original copies of the Bill of Rights along with rare copies of the Constitution and Declaration of Independence. In this talk, NCC President and CEO Jeffrey Rosen will discuss how the Constitution Center is encouraging bi-partisan constitutional debate and education, in Philadelphia and across America.

Before and after the program, GPPCMA attendees will have access to Constituting Liberty in the Constitution Center’s new George H.W. Gallery, which features rare copies of America’s three founding documents.  Take this opportunity to view this special exhibit and tour this venue.

Special thanks to our sponsor, Tourism Toronto

Thank you to our hosts, the National Constitution Center and Brûlée Catering!
