Justice Talking, the radio program that explores the legal controversies that challenge the nation, continues in May. Distributed by National Public Radio to public radio stations nationwide, the program features leading advocates debating issues of law and justice. Host Margot Adler offers audience members time for questions or comments as part of the program.
The program is produced by the Annenberg Public Policy Center and co- sponsored by the National Constitution Center and the Penn National Commission on Society, Culture and Community.
On May 7 there will be two tapings. The topic will be Sexual Identity Politics: the Fight Over Transgendered Rights from 4:30-6 p.m. Should civil rights laws protecting individuals against discrimination based on race, age, gender, and sexual orientation extend to sexual identity?
For the evening session, the topic is Bio-engineered Bites, from 7:30-9 p.m., centering on the affects of bio-engineered food on health, suggesting that warning labels should be mandated to alert shoppers about potential risks.
Tapings take place at Carpenters' Hall, 320 Chestnut Street. Tickets are free, individual and group reservations are required.
