Constitution Cafés

Sponsored by the Oakland County Bar Foundation OCBF_logo-reflex_blue

Did you know? Thomas Jefferson believed that Americans should examine and rewrite the U.S. Constitution to fit their needs every two decades! If you could scrap these parchment pages and redraft the text, what elements would you include, amend or leave out entirely?  Utilizing the Socratic Method of inquiry and discussion, you have the chance to be like our Founding Fathers each month as we look at the Constitution, from the preamble to the articles to the amendments, engaging in civil discourse to ‘create’ a new Constitution.

Constitution Cafés are FREE to attend. Students, adults and seniors are welcome. Programs take place on the second Sunday of each month at 2:00 pm (except for holidays). Come every time we meet or just drop in when you can!

Upcoming programs:

April 9: Privileges and Immunities (Article IV, Section 2, Clause 1)

May 7: Lame Ducks!  November Elections vs the 20th Amendment  *Note earlier May date

Constitution Cafés are FREE to attend, but advance registration is recommended. Call 248-524-3570 or sign up here.
