The constitution is one thing that affects everyone in the United States. The United States Constitution is the supreme law of the United States of America. It was completed on September 17, 1787, with its adoption by the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, PA, and was later ratified by special conventions in each state. It created a federal union of sovereign states, and a federal government to operate that union. 

Christopher Phillips, Ph.D., is the founder and Executive Director of the nonprofit Democracy Café (DemocracyCafe.org), dedicated to making ours a more connected understanding, and participatory world. Its flagship Socrates Cafe and Democracy Cafe endeavors continue to gain momentum worldwide after 22 years, with recently established groups in places like Qatif and Saihat, Saudi Arabia, Sujarat, India, and Seoul, South Korea, and throughout Poland. He is author of works including the critically acclaimed Constitution Café: Jefferson’s Brew for a True Revolution, the bestsellers Socrates Café: A Fresh Taste of Philosophy and Six Questions of Socrates: A Modern-Day Journey of Discovery through World Philosophy, published in about 15 languages all told, and children’s books The Philosophers’ Club and Day of Why. His newest book, A Child at Heart: Unlocking Your Creativity, Curiosity and Reason at Every Age and Stage of Life, will be published in Spanish by Penguin Random House in October. He has been a Network Ethics Fellow at Harvard University, a Senior Education Fellow at the National Constitution Center, and a Senior Writing and Research Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania. He also travels the globe giving presentations and workshops, is an Investment Advisor Representative for Martin Capital Advisors, and is currently working on two new book projects, one on spirituality and the other on democracy. He is incredibly pleased and honored to facilitate the discourse at the 6th Annual Conversation with the Constitution.
