Think Wyoming looks at the Constitution
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Wyoming Humanities Council is also known as Think Wyoming, will be holding a webinar about the Constitution on April 29 at 2 pm.
The virtual meeting is part of the Wyoming connections, “Why it Matters Project: Civics and Electoral Participation,” initiative to inform citizens about their history, culture and what role they play in a living interpretation of the Constitution.
The panel will be moderated by Dr. David Adler, a Constitutional scholar and four Wyoming citizens from across the state who have a personal experience with the Constitution.
CEO of the Wyoming Humanities Council wants people to walk away, understanding that the historical document isn’t just for the government but is meant to be a living document that affects our democracy and daily societal function.
“We can be diverse and have many perspectives. We can have many interests but at the end of the day, we all need to work together to solve complex problems.”
Reese says our democracy is participatory and we all have a responsibility to it. Our constitution supports this process, but it needs us to be informed citizens.
