    Monadnock Summer Lyceum

    Executive Director Olivia Zink will moderate the June 30th program of the Monadnock Summer Lyceum with Jeff Clements, titled: Equal Citizens or Oligarchy: New Hampshire and the Cross-partisan Movement for the 28th Amendment to the US Constitution.  

    Constitutional attorney Jeff Clements is a founder and current President of American Promise, the national organization leading the cross-partisan campaign for the 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The organization has thousands of members in every state, including New Hampshire. 

    Clements will describe his mounting concerns about the current assaults on American democracy. These include systemic corruption, unequal representation, and control of elections and policymaking by powerful, wealthy interests.  He supports a new 28th Constitutional Amendment that would limit election funding, thus combating corruption and securing free speech and equal representation for all Americans.

    The Monadnock  Summer Lyceum presents world class speakers  on summer Sunday mornings  in the historic Peterborough Unitarian Universalist Church. Our mission is to inform, to engage, and to inspire.

    Join us for enlightening presentations on social, political, educational, cultural, scientific, economic, environmental and artistic topics of our time. Enrich your summer in Peterborough, NH, in the heart of the Monadnock Region.

    Speakers begin at 11:00 am. Come at 10:30 to enjoy a live music  performance before the talk.
