March 4, 2014

Dave Roland hosted the show, joined by Trent England for a conversation about the Freedom Foundation’s work to advance constitutional principles. The first third of the show explained the role of state constitutions in our federal system and noted that the Freedom Foundation has produced pocket-sized Washington Constitutions and a book about the Washington Bill of Rights that are available for purchase. The next segment included a look at how groups like the Freedom Foundation can take on lawsuits designed to secure Washingtonians’ constitutional rights and use them to establish important precedents in the U.S. Supreme Court. For the final part of the show, Trent and Dave explained Harris v. Quinn, an important case that the U.S. Supreme Court will decide this term, and they asked listeners to contact the Freedom Foundation if the listeners heard of someone whose liberty was being restricted due to union influence.
