DANBURY — State Sen. Julie Kushner, D-Danbury, will discuss how to get involved in government at a lecture planned for Tuesday honor of Constitution Day.

The talk will be held at 6 p.m. in Room 127 of White Hall on the Midtown campus of Western Connecticut State University. It is free and open to the public.

Constitution Day recognizes the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution and honors those who have become citizens.

“We want educators and students — and the whole community — to take time every year to discuss what the U.S. Constitution means to all of us,” Michelle Brown, the WCSU dean of the Macricostas School of Arts and Sciences, said in a press release. “The document is alive and applies to every citizen. We owe it to ourselves to understand the authority and responsibilities we have as Americans. Sen. Kushner will provide our audience with ideas about how to get involved in government, or at least how to stay aware of how our representative government functions.”
