CONSTITUTION DAY IS WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2014

Why do we celebrate Constitution Day?

CD Small Logo

September 17 of every year is Constitution Day, a day to recognize the signing of the United States Constitution in 1787. In 2004, Congress passed a law mandating any school receiving federal funds of any kind provide educational programming on the significance of this event. The American Civil Liberties Union has made Constitution Day programming in schools across the country an educational priority. This year, the ACLU of Indiana will build on the program we launched in 2013, offering web resources, materials and trained volunteers to classrooms in Indiana. Get more information about Constitution Day resources by emailing us atconstitutionday@aclu-in.org

ACLU of Indiana's 2013 Constitution Day Program

In 2013, thanks to 19 volunteers, including many Board members, the ACLU of San Diego, ACLU National and a grant from the Efroymson Family Fund, we were able to supply speakers to approximately 1,347 students, classroom materials to more than 4,000 students, and online resources to all Indiana students and educators. The counties of Allen, Clay, Decatur, Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson, Madison, Marion, Miami, Monroe, Putnam, and Union were served directly with resources. Educators and volunteers who are interested in participating in next year's program on Wednesday, Sept. 17, 2014 are invited to contact us at constitutionday@aclu-in.org.

Teachers & parents: Make every day Constitution Day with free resources!
