The Humanist Hour #114: Talkin’ Humanist Politics with Senator Jamie Raskin

In this episode, Bo Bennett interviews Maryland State Senator Jamie Raskin about being a Humanist in politics. Raskin serves on the Maryland Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee and is a professor of constitutional law and the first amendment at American University’s Washington College of Law. He is the bestselling author of "Overruling Democracy: The Supreme Court versus the American People", and "We the Students: Supreme Court Cases For and About Students".

As a freshman senator, Raskin has seen more than a dozen of his bills pass into law, including a statewide civil rights law, the National Popular Vote plan for presidential elections, a law protecting tenants in condo conversions, a law establishing September 17th as Constitution and Bill of Rights Day, and a farm-to-schools initiative to get locally grown farm food into public schools.
