Debate a Constitutional Question: How Much Power Should the Federal Government Have Over States?. With special guest moderator Professor David Moss, Harvard Business School Paul Whiton Cherington Professor of Business Administration

Take part in an engaging community discussion that will have you step into the shoes of the Constitutional Convention delegates of 1787 and ask: How much power ̶ and what type of power ̶ should be vested in the Federal government?

The event is designed to encourage those of all ages in our community ̶ from students to seniors ̶ to recommit to our democratic process of healthy debate and constructive compromise

Led by award-winning academic, David Moss, author of the recent book, Democracy: A Case Study, this program will give you a new perspective on a foundational issue, one which still resonates with our politics today
