The People's Constitution

Who wrote the Constitution? That’s obvious, we think: 55 men in Philadelphia in 1787. But much of the Constitution was actually written later, in a series of 27 amendments enacted over the course of two centuries. Join the Brennan Center’s Wilfred Codrington and John Kowal as they discuss their new book, The People’s Constitution: 200 Years, 27 Amendments, and the Promise of a More Perfect Union.

This event is produced in partnership with the National Parks of New York Harbor Conservancy at Federal Hall.
