IWAT Presents- Civil Liberties in the Time of Pandemic

Wednesday, June 24, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT

The Institute for World Affairs and Trade at Rockford University in partnership with Rockford Public Library are presenting a program about the present COVID-19 pandemic in which Americans face the serious issue of balancing the Constitutional rights of individuals against governments’ need to protect public health.

 Join us for a 90 minute presentation and an open discussion on Wednesday, June 24, 2020, at 1pm CT (2pm ET).  Issues will include stay-at-home measures; freedom of religion, travel, and association; modifications to electoral process; mandatory vaccine requirements; business closures; rights of prisoners and exposure to the virus, and government monitoring measures.

Presenters are Jason Mazzone, who is the Albert E Jenner, Jr. Professor of Law at the University of Illinois and the Director of the Illinois Program in Constitutional Theory, History and Law; and Attorneys Dan McCarthy and Joe Richotte, who are affiliated with the law firm of Butzel Long, and have extensive experience in civil and criminal trial and appellate practice. They are involved in landmark cases in Michigan concerning constitutional rights of business owners and the state’s closure measures
