By the time of his retirement in June 2010, John Paul Stevens had become the second longest serving Justice in the history of the Supreme Court. He was involved with many of the defining decisions of the modern era.

On Tuesday, May 19, Justice Stevens joined us for a provocative conversation about his time on the Court and his observations on ways in which the Constitution should be amended in order to protect our democracy and the safety and well-being of American citizens.
