Constitution Day and Other Panels
Keene State Journalism faculty have affirmed the federal requirement recognizing our annual Constitution Day event titled “Got Rights?” In addition, we have worked with the American Democracy Project to provide election-oriented panels including most recently “Smoke and Mirrors," an interactive chat about how presidential candidates have been packaged and pitched to citizens. Also we regularly offer press conferences and presentations from community leaders and topical newsmakers.
