Constitutional Issues Team

Our country has been the success that it is because it has been grounded in our flexible, fair, and robust Constitution.  The Founding Fathers were adept at identifying, carefully considering, and addressing issues as relevant today as they were over 200 years ago.  Whether baseline assumptions of equality and rights articulated in our Bill of Rights or the foundations of our democracy as describe in the Constitution and its amendments, our country’s success is rooted in respect for our legal foundations.  If you are concerned about the direction our country is taking denigrating our free press, discriminating on the basis of religion or ethnicity, or ignoring the rule of law and the principles of honesty and civility our Founding Fathers stood for, join the Constitutional Issues Team.  Like all UKAN Teams, this Team educates its members, the community, and UKAN and calls individuals, group members, and UKAN to Action.
