The Bill of Rights Institute has an online pledge form and other material to help celebrate on what's been the federal day of observance since 1941.
Says the nonprofit organization: "The amendments in the Bill of Rights do not 'give' anyone anything. However, the Bill of Rights protections do stop the government from doing certain things. This kind of limited government is the essence of liberty: the freedom to act without unauthorized restraint."
The institute asks Americans to take 10 minutes to read the Bill of Rights today, either on their own or with co-workers. The site also includes landmark Supreme Court cases and other resources. Employers are encouraged to give workers the time for the review.
"The celebration of Bill of Rights Day encourages Americans to think about how vital the Bill of Rights is to the future of our country," said Bill of Rights Institute Board of Directors member Todd Zywicki in a news release. "By thinking about how our rights are evident in our Founding documents, Americans will begin to see how their own lives are affected by the Bill of Rights and how their actions are important in supporting the experiment in self-government started by our Founders."
