Celebrate Constitution Day with us on September 17

On Sept17, 1787, delegates of the Constitutional Convention adopted the United States Constitution, setting in motion the system of government that would guide our country for the next 234 years. Today, we recognize that historic mile marker each year on Sept. 17 as Constitution Day. 

One of the ways this national day of observance is celebrated is through educational programming on the history of the American Constitution. This year, the Kansas City Public Library and The Missouri Bar are working together to share Taking it to the Streets: Controversy, Protest and the First Amendment, a virtual, interactive Lunch and Learn presentation to celebrate Constitution Day.  

Dr. Tony Simones, director of Citizenship Education for The Missouri Bar, will discuss some of the fundamental rights guaranteed in the First Amendment of our U.S. Constitution in light of recent court cases and events. 

An RSVP is required, please register for this event here.
