Pat O’Malley’s book, “A More Perfect Union” is now available. It’s a handy, portable edition of the U.S. Constitution, along with several brief articles on its history, details, how our government works, and how YOU can influence your elected officials. You can order it through her website.
Pat also teaches American Civics and Government at the University of Pittsburgh’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.
Her column, “Community Matters,” uses the U.S. Constitution and current events to teach American government process and function – civics. She explains the history, rationale, policies, and procedures shaping government operations. She doesn’t report the news. She explains it.
