Constitution Day Celebration to Focus on Bill of Rights

Sept. 17 is recognized each year as Constitution Day and Citizenship Day. This year, the celebration is focused on the the 225th anniversary of Congress’ approval of the Bill of Rights. The purpose of Constitution Day is to commemorate the creation and signing of the supreme law of the land and to honor and celebrate the privileges and responsibilities of U.S. citizenship. Judges and lawyers have a unique opportunity to bring awareness to the nation’s founding document. The TBA offers a number of resources for those who wish to speak on these issues. Also on Wednesday, a new partnership of 26 nonprofit, nonpartisan organizations dedicated to raising awareness of civics education and providing free, high-quality resources for teachers and classes will be announced in Washington, D.C. The groups, including the American Bar Association and the U.S. Courts, will form the new Civics Renewal Network.
