CONSTITUTION WEEK

The United States Constitution stands as a testament,
which was created by our founding fathers,
to maintain our American liberties and freedoms,
and to
ensure those unalienable rights, to every American.

The tradition of celebrating the Constitution was started by the Daughters of the American Revolution.

In 1955, DAR petitioned Congress to set aside September 17-23 annually to be dedicated for the observance of Constitution Week.
The resolution was later adopted by the US Congress and signed into public law on August 2, 1956, by President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

The aims of the celebration are to: emphasize citizen’s responsibilities for protecting and defending the Constitution;
inform people that the Constitution is the basis for American’s great heritage and the foundation for our way of life;
and encourage the study of the historical events which led to the framing of the Constitution in September 1787.
