P&P Live! : Ben Sheehan - OMG WTF Does the Constitution Actually Say?: A Non-Boring Guide to How Our Democracy is Supposed to Work — in conversation with Rep. Jamie Raskin

Upcoming Event
Friday, May 1, 2020 - 7:00pm

This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live! Series. 

Sheehan’s mission to increase voter participation began in 2016, when, as executive director of Save the Day, he used digital videos to help register 50,000 new voters. In 2018 he founded OMG WTF (Ohio, Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin, Texas, Florida) to teach voters about executive races during the midterm elections. That project generated Gerrymander Jewelry—a finalist for Fast Company's World Changing Ideas 2019—and now this essential primer on how our government was designed to work. Using clear commentary and graphics, Sheehan has annotated the entire Constitution, from its preamble through the amendments, explaining the document’s provisions, pointing out its loopholes, and giving readers everything they need to become informed, effective voters.Sheehan is joined in conversation by Congressman Jamie Raskin, U.S. Representative for Maryland's 8th congressional district and author, most recently, of We the Students: Supreme Court Cases for and about Students
