Less than half of all Americans can name a single Supreme Court justice and more than two thirds can’t name all three branches of government. It’s bigger than a crisis of common knowledge; lack of civics knowledge keeps people from fully participating as a citizen. Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman to serve on the Supreme Court, was concerned about this knowledge gap and created a non-profit to engage and educate students. Now, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor has taken up her mantle. She sits down with Soledad O’Brien to discuss the country’s democratic future.
