Herrick Roth Community Seminars on Democracy: Democracy & the Colorado
Constitution: Success Story or Cautionary Tale?


Thursday, October 12, 2023

5:00 PM – 7:00 PM
 

Terrace Room (2nd floor), Lawrence Street Center
1380 Lawrence Street, Denver, CO 80204 Denver, CO 80204

From TABOR, to water rights, to marijuana, Coloradans have used their constitution to expand rights beyond those offered in the U.S. Constitution. As public attention shifts from the U.S. Supreme Court to the states, what can Colorado’s constitutional experiments teach the nation – and what are the challenges facing Coloradans?
Join us for a lively discussion, including a moderated Q&A and light refreshments.

About the Herrick Roth Lecture Series

The Herrick Roth Lecture Series at the School of Public Affairs was established to honor the late activist, labor leader, and founder of the Colorado Forum, Herrick Roth. Mr. Roth was deeply committed to understanding what he called “horizon issues,” which he defined as long-term public concerns that needed thoughtful reflection, discussion, and understanding in order to facilitate Colorado’s meaningful and healthy growth. Thus, the Herrick Roth Community Seminar Series on Democracy aims to support and promote discussions around issues of civic engagement, political polarization, and other complicated public policy issues amongst communities within and beyond the University of Colorado Denver.

About the Center for Policy and Democracy

The Center for Policy and Democracy is a hub for research, teaching, and community engagement on public policy and democracy. Working across disciplines, states, and countries, we bring various perspectives to study and inform how policies and politics impact the most important issues facing democratic societies today.
