Mark Rosenbaum (Jonah ’10) spoke to Advanced Placement United States Government and Politics students on April 15 about what it means to represent the public’s interest and fight for liberties not explicitly written in the Constitution.

Rosenbaum is Chief Counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union.

In four different classes, Rosenbaum presented three cases regarding civil rights in California.

“I thought it would be interesting to present students with real life civil rights cases, because too often we assume that civil rights struggles are part of the past, not the present,” Rosenbaum said.
