Description

Hey all,

The Society for Constitutional Protection is pleased to announce a lecture with David Greenberg, Professor of Journalism and History at Rutgers University. He is also a contributing editor to Politico Magazine, where he writes a regular column, and he previously served as managing editor and acting editor of The New Republic.

Professor Greenberg specializes in American political and cultural history. His new book, Republic of Spin: An Inside History of the American Presidency (W.W. Norton, 2016), examines the rise of the White House spin machine, from the Progressive Era to the present day, and the debates that Americans have waged over its implications for democracy.

Some potential topics for Professor Greenberg's presentation include:

--The importance of the Free Press to our democracy.

--The challenges this new administration poses to the First Amendment.

--The history of White House spin and where this administration stacks up.

This should be a fascinating and educational lecture. I personally am looking forward to learning a lot. Note, the first thirty minutes will be reserved for group announcements/activities. The lecture will begin at 6:30. And you must bring photo identificaiton to gain accesss to the building.

Best,

Daniel Miller (Founder, the Society for Constitutional Protection)

Organizer Daniel Miller, Democracy Prep Civics Program, and Civics Nation

Organizer of The Press and the Presidency: A Lecture by David Greenberg

Daniel Miller is a lawyer, activist, and writer living in Philadelphia. He runs a civics education group called The Society for Constitutional Protection dedicated to teaching people about the Constitution. He recently wrote an opinion piece for the Washington Post about how America needs a tent revival for the Constitution. The article was subsequently picked up by papers throughout the country, from the Charleston Gazette-Mail in West Virginia to the Herald and News In Klamath Falls, Oregon. This widespread coverage and support spurred him to bring to life the idea of a tent revival for the Constitution as a way to join together Americans of all backgrounds and political affiliations.

Democracy Prep Civics Program is the civics program for Democracy Prep, a charter school network based in Harlem whose mission it is to educate responsible citizen-scholars for success in the college of their choice and a life of active citizenship. Democracy Prep Public Schools currently operates 21 high-performing schools and one program in New York, New Jersey, Baton Rouge, Las Vegas, and San Antonio educating 6,500 citizen-scholars. The incredible growth of the scholars is possible through the tireless and dedicated work of the educators who make up our DREAM Team.

Civics Nation is a civics organization and blog based in Los Angeles that breaks the partisan divide with a wide range of fact-based news and opinion articles that connect current events to civics lessons on the U.S. Constitution, U.S. history, and our government.
