The American Civil Liberties Union of Connecticut will send volunteers to Connecticut high schools on and around Sept. 17, 2012 to celebrate the 225th birthday of the U.S. Constitution.
The annual Constitution Day program aims to educate and engage students on constitutional issues and to help schools fulfill a congressional mandate to provide instruction about the Constitution in recognition of the day. Our committed group of lawyers, professors, law students and other volunteers delivers presentations at high schools across Connecticut with an interactive curriculum designed to draw students into a conversation about the Bill of Rights.
We will hold a training session for volunteer speakers at 6 p.m. on Sept. 6 in the Board Room at the main branch of the West Hartford Public Library, 20 South Main St. If you have questions or would like to sign up for one of these sessions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 860-523-9146.
This annual endeavors to renew appreciation for the Constitution is just part of the ACLU's continuous program of education and outreach. Teachers or administrators who are interested in arranging a speaker for Constitution Day or for another time during the school year are encouraged to contact us by the same means, email@example.com or 860-523-9146.
