Civics Awareness Series hosts 'Democracy and the Supreme Court: What Are the Cases to Watch?'

The Wheaton Public Library, in partnership with the Leagues of Women Voters of Wheaton, Central Kane County, Glen Ellyn, Naperville, and Roselle-Bloomingdale, invite the public to their next Civic Awareness Series program on Thursday, June 15.

From overturning Roe v. Wade, which ended the constitutional right to abortion, to Sackett v. EPA, which gutted the Clean Water Act of 1972, recent Supreme Court rulings are changing national policy precedents.

The Civic Awareness Series will feature Professor Steven Schwinn, who will present the current issues before the Supreme Court and their implications.

Schwinn is a law professor at University of Illinois-Chicago and is a frequent commentator on issues related to constitutional law and human rights. He is a co-founder and co-editor of the Constitutional Law Prof Blog and an occasional contributor to other blogs and publications.

The program will be 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Zoom and in-person in meeting room A at the Wheaton Public Library, 225 N Cross St.
