To help Americans celebrate and remember the freedoms embodied in the first 10 Amendments, the Bill of Rights Institute has created a new website
The Institute asks all Americans to join together and pledge to take 10 minutes to read through the Bill of Rights on December 15, and to visit BillofRightsDay.com
“The celebration of Bill of Rights Day encourages Americans to think about how vital the Bill of Rights is to the future of our country,” said Bill of Rights Institute Board of Directors member Todd Zywicki. “By thinking about how our rights are evident in our Founding documents, Americans will begin to see how their own lives are affected by the Bill of Rights and how their actions are important in supporting the experiment in self-government started by our Founders.”
Bill of Rights Day is sponsored by the Bill of Rights Institute, a nonprofit educational organization. More information on Bill of Rights Day can be found at www.BillofRightsDay.com
