For Us, By Us: America’s Trust In & Expectations of, The Constitution
  • Date: Tuesday, September 18, 2018 - Wednesday, September 19, 2018
  • Time: 11:30 pm
  • Location: William G. McGowan Theater, Washington, DC

Moderated Judy Woodruff, Anchor of PBS NewsHour, join us for a discussion of the results of a national survey conducted by James Madison’s Montpelier, created with the goal of better understanding how Americans relate to our government and its founding document. The survey was designed to reveal how the priorities of Americans differ based on salient demographic attributes, such as race and ethnicity, age, gender, and socioeconomic status, and how these impact trust in the government and its functions. The survey also examined which Constitutional issues are the most important to individuals, and which American’s feel are more important to the nation as a whole. Panelists include Susan Glasser, Journalist, The New Yorker/Politico;Hasan Jeffries, Professor of History, Ohio State University; and Rachna Choudhry, Founder and CMO, POPVOX.

Presented in partnership with the Center for the Constitution at James Madison’s Montpelier.
