Constitution Day Events
On Constitution Day (Tuesday, September 17th), Fredonia's American Democracy Project is hosting a panel comprised of lawyers from the Chautauqua County Women's Bar Association (CCWBA). They will be discussing "Checks and Balances of Government as outlined in Articles I, II, and III" and the "Impeachment Clause in Articles I and II" from 11:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. in the Garden Room at Reed Library.
Following the panel discussion, there will be "open office hours" from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. to allow students to stop in and ask questions on a variety of law-related topics. Light refreshments will be available for both the panel discussion and the office hours.
Along the route from the entrance of Reed Library to the Garden Room, each Amendment will be displayed on its own large easel for easy reading along with an opportunity for everyone to write comments on why a specific Amendment matters most to them and if they feel it should be amended, and why.
Voter registration forms will be available if needed along with pocket Constitution booklets if you want to keep one handy in your backpack or purse.
This event is sponsored by the Division of Advancement, Engagement, and Economic Development and the Fredonia American Democracy Project.
