The topic of Mr. Warren's address will be "100 Days to Constitutional Restoration: What the Next President Must Do." Over the last eight years, the Bush administration has systematically dismantled some of the most important rights and protections in the United States Constitution. In the first 100 days of office, the next president can---often with the stroke of a pen---restore, protect, and expand the fundamental rights on which our nation was founded.
Vincent Warren will discuss the Center's 100 Days Campaign, which calls for ending torture, rendition, and illegal detention, protecting dissent, abolishing preventive detention, limiting state secrets privilege, restoring the War Powers Act, stopping warrantless wiretapping, and rolling back executive power. Mr. Warren will present the crucial ways that all of us need to keep the pressure on the next president to Restore the Constitution.
The event will feature a cocktail reception followed by the program with a question and answer session. To purchase tickets please visit Town Hall's website, space is limited so please buy your tickets early. For more information please contact José Monzon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
