The Center for Community Engagement and the Office of Disability Resources invite you to commemorate national Constitution Day. Stop by our tables on Campus Walk between noon and 3 p.m. on Friday, September 15, to get your free pocket constitution! Additional braille constitutions will be provided during this time, as part of a celebration of Disability Voting Rights Week.

In addition, the Center for Community Engagement and UMW Votes will be sponsoring National Voter Registration Day in Ball Circle on Tuesday, September 19. National Voter Registration Day will feature games, music, information, voter registration stations, and other activities. Additional copies of the pocket constitutions will be available.

Constitution Day, once known as Citizenship Day, became a federal observance in 2004 and commemorates the Sept. 17, 1787, signing of the Constitution. UMW’s Constitution Day events are a joint effort between the Office of the Provost and the Center for Community Engagement.
