Join us as we discuss “The Facts About Slavery In Vermont”. Most are starting to come to understand that the United States constitution has a loophole that has always permitted slavery “for the punishment of a duly convicted crime”. But what would you say if you discovered the Vermont State constitution contains a loophole of it’s own? Professor and Author, Harvey Amani Whitfield, Vermont Law School Constitutional Law Professor, Peter Teachout and former US Attorney and Author Gary Shattuck will be on panel to discuss the implications. Executive Director of Justice For All, Mark Hughes and legislators will update us on efforts underway to amend the constitution and more. PR.2 is recommended for review prior to attending.
Please verify with the organizer that events are taking place in light of recommended social distancing measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
