On Tour: Minneapolis, Minnesota

The American Constitution Society helped to host a wonderful event last Friday at the University of Minnesota School of Law…

Mikaela Gaworski, Annie Zinos and Catherine Williams with Mary Beth Tinker.

Annie’s mother Emily tells us that her husband Nicholas filed the lawsuit A.Z. vs. Nova Classical Academy on Annie’s behalf. You can read more about the students’ courageous struggle and victory here

We also got to meet up with University of Minnesota Professor (and former Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press Executive Director) Jane Kirtley!

Thanks to everyone for all the love, and to Ian Welsh for working hard to make the event a success!
