Event Description

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.

Working together to build a stronger community - now and forever

Neighborhoods: What is Working

Organizational Culture of Fear: The Shadow Side of US Culture

Don't let the title mislead you. Peter's intimate conversation with life, career and business coach CJ Liu is profound, touching and funny. Ostensibly a discussion of Peter's book Flawless Consulting, CJ says at the end, "We didn't talk about the book at all." Instead, the conversation ranged from personal transformation, integrating who you are with what you do and outlets for pain and rage to freedom, authenticity, courage and the power of co-creation--plus yoga, cartoons, parenting and much more.

The Problem With Problems

One of the reasons we may have so little productive citizen creativity at the local level is that people buy into the belief that the purpose of getting together is to deal with a problem. There is another purpose that is probably more important: engagement that mobilizes citizen creativity and contributions.

Who Has the Skills to Build Community? We All Do

Transcription of John and Peter's September 12th conversation with YES! Magazine co-founder Sarah van Gelder on her 12,000-mile cross-country journey learning from people who were re-making America from the ground up and how it led to starting up a new project: PeoplesHub, an online space where communities can learn and share the skills of making powerful change.

Open Streets Project Revamped

The Open Streets Project has undergone some changes over the last year. We bid a sad farewell to project co-founder, the Alliance for Biking & Walking, who are moving on to other things, and we happily welcomed a new partner, international Open Streets leader 8 80 Cities. We are excited for all the possibilities and energy this partnership will bring.

#CraftingSomethingGreat in Duluth

In an op-ed for the Duluth News Tribune, Pam Kramer enumerates the plans, investments, collaborations and creative sparks that have turned an area of blight and brownfield into the Lincoln Park Craft District. The humming, entrepreneurial neighborhood has become a model for how to leverage local craft manufacturing to fuel community revitalization, says Duluth LISC’s executive director.

In San Diego, LISC is an Engine that Accelerates Opportunity

An in-depth article in the San Diego Union Tribune touted LISC’s new fund to spur affordable housing creation in a city facing a serious shortage. We beg to differ with the “little-known” descriptor in the article’s title, but the account of LISC’s 25 years of work in underinvested San Diego neighborhoods illustrates our role perfectly.

A Safe, Affordable Haven for LGBTQ Seniors

Town Hall Apartments in Chicago is an extraordinary—and rare—example of affordable housing geared for LGBTQ seniors, many of whom enter their later years with few resources after a lifetime of discrimination. It’s community development at its best, helping people access opportunities and stabilize their lives. In recognition of LGBTQ History Month, we throw a spotlight on Town Hall and hope it will serve as a path-breaking model for communities everywhere.
