This program will arm citizen activists with the constitutional information they need to restore liberty and constitutional government in America. Citizens will learn reliable, factual information from two of America’s top constitutional scholars. Participants also will learn how to identify myths that, intentionally or not, can undermine the cause.

Attend this program to discover the real facts about:

* Why the Constitution was adopted and what purpose it serves

* Untruths spread about the Founders and the Founding spread by those who seek to discredit it

* How the Constitution was to be interpreted.

* What key provisions in the Constitution really meant.

* How politicians and courts have destroyed limits on federal power and driven America toward bankruptcy

* How you can use the tools provided by the Constitution to restore the Founders’ vision

Faculty: The faculty for the program are two of America’s leading constitutional scholars:

* David Kopel is Research Director of the Independence Institute and one of the nation’s leading experts on the Second Amendment. The author of numerous books and articles, he also teaches Advanced Constitutional Law at the University of Denver.

* Rob Natelson is the Senior Fellow in Constitutional Jurisprudence at Independence and at two other think tanks. He was formerly professor of constitutional law at the University of Montana, and has authored numerous books and articles, including the 2010 book, The Original Constitution: What It Actually Said and Meant.

Cost: Only $20.

Advance registration required.  RSVP online or call Mary at 303-279-6536 X102
