As America’s forum for constitutional dialogue, the National Constitution Center invites citizens to join the conversation through town hall programs—and engages diverse, distinguished leaders of government, public policy, journalism, and scholarship for timely discussions and debates.
The Center is a place where important conversations happen—its programs tackle the toughest constitutional issues facing our nation, explore fascinating moments of our history, and illuminate the relevance of the Constitution and its legacy of freedom. Following in the footsteps of the Founders, who overcame vast differences of opinion to establish the foundation for America’s democracy, the Center promotes a tone of civility and respect in all dialogue.
The Center has welcomed numerous distinguished guests, including Al Gore, Sonia Sotomayor, Sandra Day O’Connor, Donald Rumsfeld, Gwen Ifill, Ron Chernow, and Tina Brown.
