15th Annual Constitution Day Conference
Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019, 8 a.m. – 3 p.m.
The Reagan Foundation invites K-12 teachers to a full day of sessions and lectures designed to commemorate the signing of the United States Constitution. Each year, schools dedicate time on or around September 17 to deepen an understanding of the Constitution as a kick-off to an entire year of civic learning that prepares students to be informed, engaged citizens. The keynote speakers are:
• Kenneth Morris, a descendant of Frederick Douglass and Booker T. Washington and the co-founder and president of Frederick Douglass Family Initiatives
• Ditas Katague, the director of California Complete Count, which oversees and coordinates California’s education and outreach program for the 2020 Census
This event is co-sponsored by the Arsalyn Program of the Ludwick Family Foundation, the Los Angeles County Office of Education, Constitutional Rights Foundation, Center for Civic Education, the Southern California Social Science Association, and the Ventura County Office of Education.
Nonrefundable registration is $25 per person and includes tours of the museum and free, ready-to-use classroom lesson plans. The first 200 teachers to sign up and attend will receive a $75 stipend.
