dialogue: visit a classroom

Operation Protect & Defend, also known as OPD, is a non-profit civics organization that was founded by now retired U.S. District Court Judge Frank Damrell (E.D. Cal.) in the wake of 9/11 to create a dialogue with high school students about the U.S. Constitution and our civic duty to participate in our democracy. OPD’s success is due in part to an important federal-state collaboration by bringing federal and state court judges together with members of the federal and state court bars. After students complete the curriculum, which focuses on an important constitutional issue, local judges and attorneys volunteer to visit participating classrooms in pairs to engage the students in a discussion on the issue they just learned about. A training session is provided for both new and returning volunteers to help prepare them for their classroom visit. New: If you are interested in visiting a classroom or would like more information, contact us at opd@opdcivics.org.

OPD will host two training sessions for the Dialogue.  The first will be held on Thursday, February 11, 2021, at 5:00 pm, and the second training will be held on Tuesday, February 16, 2021, at 5:00 pm.  Both trainings will be held via zoom.  Information below:
