Garden City, NY This year NCC is proud to present the program "Can a Document Save Our Democracy?" on Wednesday, September 17 at 3:30p.m. in the College Center Building (CCB). The event, which is free and open to the public, is being held in celebration of Constitution Day. It features distinguished attorney Eric Lane, Professor of Public Law and Public Service at Hofstra Law School, whose latest book is entitled The Genius of America: How the Constitution Saved the Country and How It Can Again. Prof. Lane will make the case that the U.S. Constitution is a 'how-to' manual for curing what ails our body politic today.

Through 2005, he served as special counsel to the Speaker of the New York City Council.
