Constitution Day

The Constitution of the United States—Four pages that created a new government more than 200 years ago—A covenant that continues to shape profoundly the lives of each one of us to this day.

On Constitution Day, observed this year on September 17, the United States pauses to commemorate the drafting of its Constitution. We invite everyone to join us in making, or renewing, your acquaintance with this extraordinary document, and reflecting on its historical and contemporary significance.
