Day commemorates the signing of the US Constitution on September
17, 1787 at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. It
is a day to honor and celebrate native born citizens and foreign-born
Americans who became naturalized citizens during the past year.
Observed on this date since 1952, citizenship was first celebrated
as "I am an American Day" on the third Sunday in May.
Day, sometimes called Constitution Day, is an important opportunity
to remind ourselves and our communities about the rights and responsibilities
of being citizens, to our nation and as global citizens in our
global community. As citizens, it is our responsibility to become
active participants in our democracy, and to make sure that everyone's
civil rights are protected.
