Join us for a Zoom presentation from Donna Cohen, MLIS, MEd:

The Constitution: Fulfilling Democracy's Promise?
Democracy, the Constitution and Representation in Congress.

We'll look at the Constitution’s creation and its structural limitations, and trace major changes to its interpretation. We'll puncture some myths and develop a perspective that helps evaluate its meaning more thoughtfully.

I was a teacher and librarian and now devote my time to developing, refining and presenting these workshops. My background, expertise, and interest have combined to help me fill a need. 
I believe that civic education should be lifelong and also that public libraries are the best places for this. I agree with Ms Spaulding, and these workshops are my contribution:
“Civic education is a national security imperative and something that really needs to be reinvigorated in our schools and in our communities!” Suzanne Spaulding, former Under Secretary for cyber and infrastructure protection at the US Department of Homeland Security.
The life of our democracy depends on its citizens thinking critically, understanding basic political structures and engaging in the work of sustaining and building our society.

This presention is made possible by the Friends of the Lake Oswego Public Library.  For more information, please call or email Todd Feinman at 503-675-2535 /
