2018 Midyear Meeting: Democracy Under Fire

The importance of civic engagement and the rule of law in
creating sustainable communities and a democratic society.

This year's meeting will focus on the rule of law and civics engagement. Anyone who is interested in how the rule of law failed to prevent the holocaust and the horrible consequences of that failure should attend.
