Central Coast Voices: Constitution Day- 231 Years of American Democracy

Broadcast date: 9/13/2018

Constitution Day is an American federal observance that recognizes the adoption of the United Sates Constitution and is observed on September 17, the day the U.S. Constitutional Convention signed the Constitution in 1787. A focus of the holiday is to engage the community in an appreciation of the Constitution so that they are imbued with an understanding and appreciation for the individual rights and civil liberties guaranteed by the Constitution. 

Join host Kris Kington-Barker as she speaks with Stew Jenkins, public interest lawyer and Secretary, San Luis Obispo (SLO) Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and Midori Feldman, attorney and President of SLO Chapter ACLU as they discuss the importance of individual rights, civil liberties and influence of the Constitution on our daily lives.

Central Coast Voices is sponsored by ACTION for Healthy Communities in collaboration with KCBX and made possible through underwriting by Joan Gellert-Sargen.

Kris Kington-Barker is co-host of Central Coast Voices, heard every Thursday on KCBX from 1:00—12:00 p.m. Kris has worked in healthcare fields ranging from mental health to hospital administration, and has served as a volunteer and board member for many Central Coast non-profit organizations.
