Erwin Chemerinsky’s We the People is a progressive guide to recognizing the power and promise of the Preamble and the Constitution to protect and defend individual human rights and liberties. Chemerinsky, a UC Berkeley dean and respected legal scholar, is joined by UCLA law professor and constitutional scholar Devon Carbado to discuss how to continue fighting for democratic rule, effective government, justice, liberty, and equality.
