Last year, the National Constitution Center, with generous support by Jeff Yass, commissioned a constitution drafting project that brought together leading conservative, progressive, and libertarian scholars to draft their ideal versions of a new constitution. Join Debi Ghate, vice president of strategy and innovation at Philanthropy Roundtable, as she speaks with Jeff Yass to discuss the inspirations and origins of this landmark project. Jeffrey Rosen, president and CEO of the National Constitution Center, will then moderate a panel with the drafting team leaders—Caroline Fredrickson of team progressive, Ilya Shapiro of team libertarian, and Ilan Wurman of team conservative—to discuss how they drafted their constitutions and where the project should go next.
