Celebrating the Constitution
To commemorate the September 17, 1787 signing of the constitution of the United States, Congress designated September 17th, of each year as CONSTITUTION DAY and September 17-23 of each year as CONSTITUTION WEEK.
In 2004, Public Law 108-447, Section 111 was passed requiring the following:
"Each educational institution that receives Federal funds for a fiscal year shall hold an educational program on the United States Constitution on September 17 of such year for the students served by the educational institution."
"....each Federal agency or department shall provide educational and training materials concerning the United States Constitution to each employee...on September 17 of each year."
In keeping with these congressional mandates, recent presidents have solicited help from federal and local government leaders as well as civic and religious leaders to hold events to commemorate the occasion.
I encourage all citizens to use their influence to organize and support programs that honor the Constitution.
As a Constitutional Republican I feel that is not only vital to advocate for peoples right to vote -- I feel people also need to know exactly what they are voting for. I believe it is essential for United States Citizens to know their constitutional rights. So, I want to offer anyone who is interested a free pocket constitution.
