How Could We Amend the Constitution?
12 to 2 p.m. Louise Lowry Davis Center 
The US League has asked local Leagues to establish a new position about when and how to amend the United States constitution, and has provided us with consensus questions about that issue. So we have asked two legal experts, Joseph Allen and Shane Stark, to give us background about when and how such amendments have been done in the past, and what the problems are in trying to do it. 

Both panelists are League members. Allen is a past president of ACLU and civil rights lawyer, and Stark is former Santa Barbara County Counsel. Marty Blum, government consultant for the local League and past president, will moderate the meeting and join the question and answer period. If you have had questions, the meeting will be a good time to get them answered.

Community forums are free and open to the public. Bring a brown-bag lunch and your friends. Parking behind the center is free during the meeting.
Saturday, Oct. 24 Discussion Unit 
There will be a single Discussion Unit Saturday, Oct. 24 at the Marmalade Cafe in la Cumbre Plaza from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at a cost of $30. The topic will be how to amend the U.S. Constitution.

This Unit will include a buffet lunch that will be served at noon. We encourage immediate reservations because the room has a size limit. If you have any questions, call Connie Hannah at 967-4720. Checks will be made out to the Santa Barbara League.

Marty Blum will moderate this meeting, and League members will present the consenus questions. To make reservations and for more information, click here.
