San Francisco State University has a proud tradition of sponsoring Constitution and Citizenship Day conferences that have featured the participation of a large number of students, faculty and community members. The conference provides multiple opportunities to reflect critically on the past, present and future of constitutional rights, freedoms, citizenship, democracy, equality and justice. This year’s virtual conference will feature nine sessions. The presentations will be prerecorded and made available to the SFSU community on and after September 16. For access to the recordings and participation in the all-campus survey, which will be conducted from September 1 to September 10 and discussed in session 5, please use the ilearn collaborative site “Rights Wrongs 21."
