Book talk with Caroline Fredrickson


On September 4, 2019 from 12:00-1:00 pm the Student Chapter of the American Constitution Society, along with the Byron White Center for the Study of American Constitutional Law, will host a talk with Caroline Fredrickson. The talk will take place in the Wolf Law Building, Room 207, and is open to the public. Ari Melber, MSNBC host and chief legal correspondent, has described Fredrickson as a “rare legal scholar whose research and insights are matched by practical experience in government and policy,” stating that her book, The Democracy Fix, “confronts how the rules are being gamed—and what to do about it” at “a time when Americans across the spectrum are questioning how money, inequality and corporate power may undercut their voice.”

The talk will be hosted by ACS Chapter Co-President Elliott Browning and moderated by Professor Sarah Krakoff. Fredrickson has also authored Under the Bus: How Working Women Are Being Run Over, and previously served as the director of the ACLU’s Washington legislative office and as chief of staff to Senator Maria Cantwell.
