Opening Keynote: Let's Remember Who We Are and Why We're Here - Hon. Jess Dickinson

"We do, of course, have a great constitution.  The Fourteenth Amendment says that 'no state shall deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.' And on the west side of the United States Supreme Courthouse in Washington, above eight marble columns, you will find the familiar words: 'Equal Justice Under Law.' On the east side of that building, you will find carved in the narble the words: 'Justice - the Guardian of Liberty.' They are all pretty words; but they don't mean anything if they are not applied to the lives of the least among us." (Full transcript available at the UALR Arkansas Journal of Social Change and Public Service.)
