City Club of Portland Friday Forum - The Changing U.S. Supreme Court

Date: 7/13/2018
Time: 12:00pm-1:15pm
Location: The Sentinel Hotel, 614 SW 11th Ave, Portland

This year, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down important decisions on cell phone privacy, travel restrictions, and labor rights. By any measure, the 2018 term was historical, but Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement announcement at the end of June has intensified the focus on the current Court.

Join us as we discuss how the drama in America's highest court affects Oregon. How will travel bans affect people coming to Oregon? Are labor unions in Oregon at risk of losing clout - with employers and in Salem? And will gerrymandering intensify in 2020? Join us as we ask these and other timely questions.
