Constitution Day, is an observance that recognizes the adoption of the United States Constitution and those who became U.S. citizens.

It is normally observed on September 17, the day in 1787 that delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed the document in Philadelphia.

The U.S. Constitution was adopted on this date 234 years ago, in 1787. It was ratified a year later. Including the amendments, it is a remarkable document. But it is under stress and that stress will soar as the 2022 elections near. Let’s  work to defend it. One way is to #VOTE.

On this #ConstitutionDay, we celebrate the 234th anniversary of the signing of the #Constitution, a document that continues to define our nation's core values. Today, and every day, we must stand committed to honoring these values. #AZ01

The rule of law is built on the notion that the laws treat every person equally, and it holds America up as a nation in which race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, and yes, even pocketbook do not affect the outcome of legal proceedings. But people do not believe that is true; hence, they distrust the legal system—and they distrust us, the lawyers and judges who populate it.”
