Bills of Rights Day: Dec. 15

In Association News On

The First Amendment guarantees us the freedom to express our opinion about the government in speech and in the press. It guarantees us that the government cannot control what we read in newspapers and see on television news programs.

How important is freedom of speech and press to you? A new feature from MPA and The Missouri Bar addresses the importance of the First Amendment to us all.

 On Dec. 15, 1791, Virginia became the final state to ratify the Bill of Rights, making the first 10 amendments to the Constitution law. On the 150th anniversary of this event in 1941, President Franklin Roosevelt proclaimed Dec. 15 as Bill of Rights Day. He wanted to make Americans aware of their rights and to remind them of their duties as citizens of the United States.

MPA has several camera-ready features on the Bill of Rights that you can download at www.mo-nie.com using the code: rights. Help remind your readers about the importance of the Bill of Rights by publishing an educational feature.
