SF State Hosts Constitution Day Conference

Tuesday, September 17, 2019

GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- The event, which conference coordinator Marc Stein named “Rights and Wrongs” during his five years in the position, started after Congress passed a law establishing Constitution and Citizenship Day as September 17. The two sessions will be about women’s rights in honor or the upcoming 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in the United States, Stein said.

“In 2005, the U.S. Department of Education issued regulations for implementing the new law, which requires all colleges and universities that receive federal funds to commemorate the anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787, with educational programming that focuses on the history of the U.S. Constitution,” Stein wrote in an email.
