Operation Protect & Defend gives you the opportunity to explore a current constitutional law issue and weigh in with your own point of view through dialogue, writing, and art. You will learn about important cases and laws related to this year’s issue, and you will discuss it with your classmates and in a dialogue with a local attorney and judge.
After the dialogue, you’ll have the opportunity to share your thoughts about the issue through writing and/or art. You’ll be able to compete with students across the Sacramento region in an essay contest and/or an art contest that could lead to cash awards!
