On September 17, we celebrate the birth of one of our most important national documents: the Constitution of the United States.
At the core of this 226-year-old document are the first principles our Founding Fathers envisioned: free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense. These are the same principles The Heritage Foundation promotes today.
Heritage will celebrate the Constitution’s anniversary with our sixth annual Preserve the Constitution Series, which kicks off on Tuesday, September 15. Presented by Heritage’s Edwin Meese Center for Legal and Judicial studies, this is a seven-part lecture series that culminates in the annual Joseph Story Distinguished Lecture, featuring Judge Carlos Bea. The lineup also includes former solicitor general Paul Clement, who will preview the upcoming Supreme Court term; Chapman University’s John Eastman, who will debate birthright citizenship and the Constitution; and many more.
And don’t forget to check out Heritage’s Guide to the Constitution, which provides a clause-by-clause analysis of the entire Constitution from top legal minds.
How will you celebrate Constitution Day?
