Most people are starting to come to understand that the United States constitution has a loophole that has always permitted slavery “for the punishment of a duly convicted crime.” But what would you say if you discovered the Vermont State constitution contains a loophole of its own?
Harvey Amani Whitfield, Professor and Author; Peter Teachout, Vermont Law School Constitutional Law Professor; and former US Attorney and Author Gary Shattuck comprise a panel to discuss the implications. Executive Director of Justice For All, Mark Hughes, and legislators update us on efforts underway to amend the constitution and more. PR.2 is recommended for review prior to attending.
