Yale@Gateway Series Continues Legal and Constitutional expert, Akhil Reed Amar

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (November 6, 2014) — Gateway Community College (GCC) is pleased to announce that its newly created Yale@Gateway speaker series will continue with noted Law professor, and legal and constitutional expert, Akhil Reed Amar who will speak on The Constitution Today:  Under siege or still holding up just fine?  The talk, followed by a question and answer session, will take place on November 10 at 7:00 p.m. in the college's community room and will be moderated by PBS correspondent and Yale Professor, Paul Solman.

 

Named among the top 20 contemporary US legal thinkers by a Legal Affairs poll, Amar is the author of several books including The Constitution and Criminal Procedure: First PrinciplesThe Bill of Rights: Creation and ReconstructionAmerica’s Constitution: A Biography, and in 2012, America’s Unwritten Constitution: The Precedents and Principles We Live By. The Supreme Court cited Amar's work in over 20 cases, including the landmark 1998 decision in Clinton v. City of New York, which ruled the presidential line-item veto unconstitutional. Amar is the Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science at Yale University where he teaches in the Law School and Yale College. His course on constitutional law is one of the most popular undergraduate offerings at Yale College.

 

Amar was a consultant to the television show The West Wing, on which the character Josh Lyman refers to him in an episode in Season Five, and he has made several appearances on Comedy Central's Colbert Report.

The Yale@Gateway series is free and open to the public and should be of particular interest to students and professors in the fields of Law, Business, Economics and Business Law.  For more information, contact GCC Business Professor Lorraine Li at LLi@gatewayct.edu or call (203) 285- 2285.   Gateway Community College is located at 20 Church Street in New Haven.

Dismantling Structural Racism in Community Development Finance

In an opinion piece for ImpactAlpha, LISC COO Annie Donovan draws on the expertise she honed as head of the CDFI Fund to illustrate the layered ways that BIPOC community development entities are locked out of federal tax credit allocations and other resources. "The disproportionate results reflect the same deeply seated structural barriers that prevent minority-owned enterprises from accessing credit in other parts of the economy," she writes, explaining that Congress, and the rest of us, must help remedy this inequity. 

LISC CEO: Investing in Black-owned Businesses is Good for America

In a lively Q&A with Tony Lawson, co-founder of ShoppeBlack, LISC's CEO Maurice A. Jones talks about the many levels of impact that investing in black-owned small businesses can have on our country's wellbeing. The intentional effort that created the racial health and wealth gap can only be undone through intentional effort, he explains—a remedy that ultimately boosts everyone's standard of living.

An Accurate Census Count is Imperative for America. Here’s Why.

Matt Josephs, LISC SVP and head of the organization’s policy team, makes the urgent case for why a fair and accurate census count is so important for the health and wellbeing of our communities. Anything short of that undermines equity and thwarts our democratic process. Every one of us, he writes, has a role to play in making sure the census is successful.
