The National Constitution Center is celebrating the third annual Freedom Day on April 13. This year’s program will explore what James Madison and the other framers of the Constitution would make of today’s presidency, Congress, courts and media, and how we can resurrect the Madisonian values of public reason and compromise in a polarized age. The program at the National Constitution Center will launch a new bipartisan national commission: A Madisonian Constitution for All.
Freedom Day is also celebrated at satellite events on college campuses across the country that include watch parties, discussion and debate. Guides for debate and discussion are available for download here.
Teachers and students in K-12 classrooms will be able to participate in Freedom Day as well! Go here for elementary, middle and high school level resources and lesson plans.
