What Comes Next for the Supreme Court?

Thu. May 12, 2022
12:00 — 1:00 PM CDT

Virtual Livestream


Note: This event is presented in partnership with Democracy Fund.

From a recent series of contentious Supreme Court nominations to the confirmation of the first Black woman to the bench in the Court’s history, the acute threats facing abortion and the right to privacy to the unprecedented leak of a draft opinion, the Supreme Court is again under intense scrutiny, and the stakes are undoubtedly high. As an institution, SCOTUS—its nomination process, its inner machinations, and its relationship with Congress, the presidency, and the public—have a profound impact on public policy, government effectiveness, and the lives of everyday Americans. At this critical juncture, join the Center for Effective Government and Democracy Fund to reflect on recent events with advocacy leaders and legal, institutional, and government accountability experts as we ask together: what comes next for the Supreme Court?
