Constitution Day is a Holiday celebrating the signing of the Constitution celebrated on September 17. Every year the ACLU trains volunteer representatives to go into schools for one school period to present the Constitution. This program has been well received and an overall positive experience for all who participate, students, teachers, and volunteers. The training is not long and sometimes can be done on the internet.
We will discuss how to have Constitution Day in your local schools. The speaker has participated in the Constitution Day program and is very familiar with getting the permission of the School Superintendent, the Principals of the Schools and the teachers whose class rooms will be visited. The ACLU is always looking for volunteers to support this program. The demand for Constitution Day representatives is always greater than the number of volunteers we have. Come to this panel to get a sense of what Constitution Day looks like.
Jim Nasella attended Law School at an advanced age and was struck by the genius of the writers of the US Constitution when he took a Constitutional Law class. An avid part-time historian, he believes that the document has strongly influenced the success of our Country and its future. As a former teacher he enjoys bringing this knowledge to Constitution Day students and has been surprised at the enthusiasm they show when they discover how the Constitution is there for their protection.
