Community Invited to Presentation: “Realizing the Dream: Equal Rights and Representation, Wherever You Live” (May 16,2013)

Community members are invited to attend a presentation at the Northern Marianas College that features Neil Weare, President and Founder of We the People Project, a non-profit whose aim is to advance equal rights and representation for Americans who live in U.S. territories and the District of Columbia.

The presentation, entitled, “Realizing the Dream: Equal Rights and Representation, Wherever You Live” will be held at the NMC Student Center on Friday, May 17, 2013 at 4:00pm.

Weare is lead counsel in Tuaua v. United States, a groundbreaking case arguing that Congress cannot deny Americans in the territories the right to constitutional citizenship. Prior to founding the We the People Project, Neil was Litigation Counsel and Supreme Court Fellow at Constitutional Accountability Center. Weare clerked on the Alaska Supreme Court for Justice Morgan Christen, now a Judge on the Ninth Circuit. He was also a Thomas Emerson Fellow at David Rosen & Associates in New Haven, Connecticut. As a law student, Neil argued CCJEF v. Rell, a landmark case before the Connecticut Supreme Court recognizing a right to adequate education for Connecticut schoolchildren.

There is no fee to attend the presentation.
