Presidential Proclamation on Constitution Day and Citizenship Day, and Constitution Week

Washington, DC...For 234 years, America’s Constitution has guided our growth, shaped our progress, and defined us as a Nation of sacred laws and fundamental values. When our democracy is tested, we draw strength from the Constitution to see us through. When we look ahead in our uniquely American way — restless, bold, and optimistic — our Constitution is the bedrock we build upon to make our Nation more equal, more just, and more prosperous for all our people.




American democracy requires our constant care, vigilance, and full participation to determine the course and conscience of our Union. As President, I swore an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution, and I will continue to work tirelessly to ensure that we uphold and strengthen this remarkable system of self-government for future generations ready to put their own shoulders to the wheel.

The Framers of the Constitution understood the extraordinary promise of a democratic system of government — a Nation that could be made a “more perfect Union” by each passing generation to come. They laid out a set of basic principles and equipped the American people with all that was necessary to meet the changing needs and values of our country through the years.

For more than two centuries, women and men have struggled and strived to make good on the promise of our founding document and to expand the promise of America by amending our Constitution in accordance with our growth and progress as a Nation — just as the Framers envisioned they would. Through Civil War, the fight for universal suffrage, and the heroic non-violent resistance of the Civil Rights Movement — from Seneca Falls to Selma and countless acts of civic bravery beyond — courageous Americans have fought, sacrificed, and changed hearts and minds to deliver the full breadth of human dignity to which our Constitution aspires. Fully realizing these ideals and attaining justice for all remains an urgent and enduring imperative.

Today, we are in the midst of grave attempts to suppress and subvert the right to vote in free and fair elections — the most sacred right in our democracy and the very heart of our Constitution. We must continue to rebuff these threats to ensure that American democracy remains healthy and strong. My Administration is pursuing an all-of-government effort to protect and expand the fundamental right to vote and make our democracy more equitable and accessible for all Americans.

I have often said that America is the only Nation founded on an idea. Though we have never fully lived up to it, we have never walked away from it. We have never stopped striving to fulfill the founding promise of our Nation — that all of us are created equal and deserve to be treated equally throughout our lives. My Administration is committed to bringing us closer to the fulfillment of that promise.

To honor the timeless principles enshrined in our Constitution, the Congress has, by joint resolution of February 29, 1952 (36 U.S.C. 106), designated September 17 as “Constitution Day and Citizenship Day” and authorized the President to issue a proclamation calling on United States officials to display the flag of the United States on all Government buildings on that day. By joint resolution of August 2, 1956 (36 U.S.C. 108), the Congress further requested that the President proclaim the week beginning September 17 and ending September 23 of each year as “Constitution Week.”

NOW, THEREFORE, I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim September 17, 2021, as Constitution Day and Citizenship Day, and September 17, 2021, through September 23, 2021, as Constitution Week. On this day and during this week, we celebrate our Constitution and the rights of citizenship that together we enjoy as the people of this proud Nation.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this sixteenth day of September, in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty-one, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-sixth.

JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR.

    Nah, Trump was doing that. Seriously - asking Pence to claim him victorious despite votes cast and the limitations of the VP's role? I hope Tuesday taught some of you still so dug in that, in fact, you are in the minority. If you're not happy, time to move to some enlightened place for preventative health care and women's rights like FL or TX.

      Along with Idaho which today announced "rationing" of health care due to hospitals and medical professionals being overrun with COVID cases. Wonder if FOX shared that as well?

        Wonder if the Californians running there so they don't have to wear masks or get the vaccine are beginning to get the bigger picture?

If anything the past four plus years have taught us is that democracy is fragile and has to be protected from despots. Also, how few Americans are really familiar with the words of the Constitution and an understanding of the greater good.

      You do understand that it was Trump who negotiated the withdrawal date and terms or did FOX not share that with you?

        Yes he did but even you can't believe he would have let us leave with the embarrassment and weakness we show now. Leave yes, run in the middle of the night and pull our troops before we evacuated civilians and our allies??? This bunch are just idiots

          The January 6th terrorist attack on our nation's capitol was a much greater embarrassment in my book. And judging how Trump handled that, I find it impossible to believe he could have handled a final Afghan withdrawal any better.
          The fact that Trump chose not to make the final withdrawal himself, and take the credit, only shows he was too big of a coward and had no idea how to actually accomplish it.

              Could have Jan 6 been false flag just to take Trump out? If so it worked perfectly. Realistically is erased all chance of him being elected again. Even most Trump people will agree with this.

        Yeah with conditions. Biden shredded that and did everything backass. Who has the military leave first, leaves 80 billion in military equipment and our citizens? The idiot Biden does. Maybe you should watch something other than CNN

        You do know that senile Joe doesn't remember even talking to his General that was in Afghanistan telling Joe what and what not to do? Biden says " I don't remember"
        Face the fact dude, Biden and his administration screwed it up, no one else, our Alleged Commander in Chief. He should of kept our airbase, and anyone who not a bumbling idiot knows you don't pull out the military first.
        I really hate to tell you, but most of us are not as ignorant, dumb, so easily manipulated as you seem to be, in other words we don't buy your lame ass excuse trying to blame Trump. I see you haven't even listened to Blinken getting his arse chewed out for the stupidity of how all of this went down.
        Nice try though, you sound like Joe who said the buck stops with him and he wasn't going to point fingers....the next sentence he was doing just that. Everything Biden has done turned into a Cluster Fuk. Sadly his dementia so far has so far cost the lives of 13 US Military personnel.

      Celebrating the chaos of January 6th.
      Sounds like a great idea.
      Trump says it's all a setup by the DOJ.
      Can't wait to see who is dumb enough to show up.
