Hey all,

This past Sunday, we kicked off the "Pre-July 4th" celebrations with the following two events: 1) a viewing of an Alexander Hamilton documentary; and 2) a trivia night based on the "Revolutionary Period" themes. It was fun and informative -- many pointed out that the partisan divisions that sparked at the onset of this fledgling Republic still reverberates today.

Looking ahead, there are plenty of interesting events offered this month, including:

The U.S. Supreme Court's 2016 Term in Review (July 7th) -- regular seats full, with only waitlist seats available.

Special Art Exhibition, followed by a talk on the "State of Media and the Trump Administration" presented by a member of the "mainstream journalism" (July 25th) -- it's free to attend, but very limited seats are offered. More details will be posted soon. The RSVP window will open on Friday, July 7th at 9am.

Motion Debate: "Religion" (July 26th) -- the RSVP window will open on July 10th at 9am.

Finally, as the summer season kicks into full speed, a day-trip to Governor's Island for a picnic and a walking tour will be announced during August. We're looking for volunteers to assist with planning what will be a fun excursion!

Happy Fourth of July,
