On May 1st at 1:10 PM, the DEI fellowship will study the 14th amendment to the United States Constitution.  RCFC’s premier researcher, Dr Bob Maroney, will discuss clauses and provisions.  Stacy Plemmons will discuss the historical context and impact.
The 14th Amendment was cited in Colorado's attempt to keep former president Trump off the Colorado ballot.  The amendment was passed immediately after the civil war, is a charter of basic rights for all American citizens, and is considered the “mega-Titan” of amendments due to its complexity and impact.  The amendment has been central to a wide variety of landmark cases including Brown v. Board of Education (racial discrimination), Roe v. Wade (reproductive rights), Bush v. Gore (election recounts), Reed v Reed (general discrimination) and University of California v Bakke (racial quotas in education).
All are welcome. Please plan to join us on May 1st immediately following the noon meeting.
