Miami University Middletown will observe Constitution Day on Sept. 17 by hosting an open forum on racial profiling. This panel discussion will be held at 12:30 p.m. in Room 142 of the Campus Community Center. This event is free and open to the public.
Panel participants will include: Dora Bronston, Middletown NAACP president; Eric Crank, Middletown police officer; Les Landen, City of Middletown law director; and Hilary Lerman, attorney. Mel Cohen, professor of political science, will moderate the program.
“I believe that dialogues such as this are one way of educating ourselves and ensuring that the Constitution becomes a meaningful part of our everyday lives,” said Dr. Cohen.
Constitution Day commemorates the day that the U.S. Constitutional Convention met for the last time to sign the document they had created. Citizens are encouraged to learn more about the U.S. Constitution and government on this day.
Miami University Middletown is located at 4200 E. University Blvd.
