A day to celebrate the Constitution
You won’t find a Hallmark card about it, but today, September 17, is the day to celebrate our nation’s Founding Fathers and our fundamental freedoms. It’s Constitution Day, which commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution by thirty-nine men on September 17, 1787.
At Pacific Legal Foundation, we consider every day to be Constitution Day, but on this day we honor the delegates to the Constitutional Convention who met for the last time to sign the document they had created.
