Civic leaders will host a Public Forum with Norman Siegel, Civil Liberties and Civil Rights Attorney, and Former Executive Director of New York Civil Liberties Union
On The Constitution and Trump. The forum with Norman Siegel, which will be hosted by Western CT Civic Action, will provide an opportunity to hear and discuss how the Constitution can be a road map to opposing and resisting the multiple ways in which Trump and his policies challenge long cherished principles and values in the Constitution and Declaration of Independence.
Siegel will explain what Declaration 17 (www.declaration17.com) is and how it should give us hope to speak up, not to give up. Declaration 17 is an open alliance of private individuals who have joined in opposition and resistance to the policies and practices of President Trump.
Topics that Siegel will address include the more than 20 federal cases brought against Trump and his administration challenging his policies on the travel ban, sanctuary jurisdictions, the transgender military ban, the voting rights fraud commission, DACA, and the Constitution’s 25th amendment and emoluments clauses.
In addition to taking questions from the public, Siegel will also discuss the legal justifications and feasibility of two bills of impeachment introduced by Democratic congressmen.
