Good Trouble: How have the Amendments to the Constitution changed the nation?

Twenty seven. That is the number of times the U.S. Constitution has been amended from its ratification in 1788. Today we celebrate Constitution Day, the day the Constitution was sent by the Constitutional Convention to the states for ratification. Ten of those amendments, the Bill of Rights, came in the first three years. For a document of such brevity (about the length of a college term paper), only 17 times has it had to be amended to keep pace with a rapidly changing world. Two amendments cancel each other out, leaving 15. This presentation will examine the amendment process and how they have reshaped the original document, with an eye on the issues most relevant in today’s world.

Join us in recognizing this momentous event at 12 p.m. in McDaniel 101. Free pizza will be served!
