EVENT TYPE: Speaker Reception
This is a defining moment for justice in America and the future of our nation. As we’ve seen in recent weeks, the Courts are the last safeguard on an out-of-control executive branch. President Trump has shocked the nation, claimed unchecked authority, and attacked the independence of our judiciary. We need independent judges who will be a check on the president when he violates the law or the Constitution. Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch will not be that independent voice.
The way this nomination is handled will provide the framework for all future fights. We expect several more vacancies during Trump’s presidency, and there are currently over 100 vacancies on the lower courts. Please join us for a special reception to discuss the future of the Supreme Court and the federal judiciary with Nan Aron, president of the Alliance for Justice, which is leading the fight against the Gorsuch nomination.
PRICE: $20 Members/ $25 Non-members; includes Hors d’oeuvres. $10 Lecture only
