Oct. 17 event: New York Constitutional Convention

Join Professor Carla Michalak at 11 a.m. Oct. 17 in T-101 for “New York Constitutional Convention: Yes or No?”

In November 2017, New Yorkers will be called upon to vote on whether we want our state to hold a Constitutional Convention. Should we rip up the state Constitution and start all over? Or should we simply propose amendments to the existing Constitution? Or do nothing and stick with the status quo? What are the benefits and drawbacks to calling this convention to order? Join a campus political scientist for a discussion of this intriguing and significant issue that will impact all New Yorkers!
