Through this community teach in we will explore the questions:
How have we defined what it means to be “American”? (legally, historically, culturally, etc.)
What types of rights, privileges, and protections are afforded to Americans?
This teach-in will include a discussion with Eric Liu, the founder of Citizen University, which works across the political spectrum to foster a culture of powerful citizenship. Liu is also the Executive Director of The Aspen Institute Citizenship and American Identity Program (CAI). CAI focuses on the challenge of sustaining strong citizenship in America and coherent national identity in an age of demographic flux and rising economic inequality.
Registration begins at 5:30 PM.
