*In-Person* Spotlight Speaker: Michael Waldman, How the Supreme Court is Reshaping America with AG William Tong (D-CT)

September 13, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Join us for cocktails and conversation, in Greenwich, CT  on Wednesday, September 13th at 6:00PM with Michael Waldman, President of The Brennan Center for Justice, and Attorney General William Tong (D-CT). They will discuss Michael’s new book, Supermajority: How the Supreme Court Divided America, what role the state courts play, and, possible court reforms that can protect our democracy.

In The Supermajority, Michael Waldman explores the tumultuous 2021­–2022 Supreme Court term. He draws deeply on history to examine other times the Court veered from the popular will, provoking controversy and backlash. And he analyzes the most important new rulings and their implications for the law and for American society. Waldman asks: “What can we do when the Supreme Court challenges the country?”

Michael Waldman is president and CEO of the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law, a nonpartisan law and policy institute that works to revitalize the nation’s systems of democracy and justice. He was director of speechwriting for President Bill Clinton from 1995 to 1999 and is the author of The Second Amendment: A Biography and The Fight to Vote. Waldman was a member of the Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court. A graduate of Columbia College and NYU School of Law, he comments widely in the media on law and policy.

Address will be sent in a separate email.
