The Constitution of the United States of America has endured over two centuries. It remains the object of reverence for nearly all Americans and an object of admiration by peoples around the world.
Unfortunately, the assault by 20th century liberal theorists and activist judges have seriously undermined respect for America’s core principles, denigrating some constitutional rights they disagree with and making up others.
Clearly, the future of liberty depends on America reclaiming its constitutional first principles.
Join us for an extraordinary series of events as we do our part to preserve the Constitution. Heritage’s Preserve the Constitution Series will feature the nation’s most respected judges, legal scholars, and policy analysts as they discuss how to combat these attacks on the rule of law and the Constitution.
Our Preserve the Constitution Series starts on September 9th with “A Constitutional President: Ronald Reagan and The Founding,” featuring Steve Hayward, Jim Miller, and Lee Edwards, hosted by former United States Attorney General, Ed Meese III.
Other highlights include a preview of the next Supreme Court term, on September 28th, with former Solicitor General Paul Clement and others; “The Constitution and the Common Defense: Who Ensures America’s National Security?” on October 11th, with former Attorneys’ General John Ashcroft, Michael Mukasey, and Ed Meese—the first event to feature three former Attorneys’ General; and on November 3rd, “Is ObamaCare Constitutional?” with Michael Carvin and David Rivkin, counsel for the National Federation of Independent Business and the states in the multi-state challenge to the new healthcare law.
The Heritage Foundation’s Preserve the Constitution Series seeks to change America’s course by restoring the courts to their constitutional role – to protect individual liberty, property rights, and free enterprise – and to enforce the constitutional limits on government.
