Knowing what to expect at the polls and understanding what you are voting for is important, but where you get your information is crucial to your understanding and decision-making. That’s why we’ve invited members of the judicial branch to explain and teach our community firsthand information about the United States Constitution, the court system, criminal and civil cases, and more. You’ll enter the classroom intrigued, and leave enriched and ready to make the best decisions for your family and community. This workshop series is more than just politics. It’s about understanding the influence the U.S. government has on your life, how it works for you and the lawful rights of citizens.
Please email Olivia Edwards to receive the link to register for this 8-week series, which runs from Oct. 2 through Nov. 20.
