League of Women Voters:
Is our Constitution working?
How is our Consitution holding up? Is there still a balance of powers among the three branches of government? Is the Supreme Court still an independent branch of government or should structural changes be made? What about the independence of the Fed, the Attorney General, and the Department of Justice? Are we near a constitutional crisis? See details here.

September 24: The Future of the Supreme Court
JCC Boston Hot Buttons, Cool Conversations Series
We will examine the shift in the Supreme Court and its power to determine the direction of hot button issues including reproductive rights, gun laws, and immigration. We will look at the Court as a bellwether of this nation and examine the power as the highest court. Does the Court reflect the views of the country and where it’s headed?
