    Educating Youth on Basic Civics
    The Liberty Day Institute sees the Declaration of Independence as the promise and the U.S. Constitution as the fulfillment of American Liberty, and believes the only way to keep this promise for future generations is to impart upon today’s youth a good understanding of our nation’s founding documents, the history surrounding their creation, our political foundation, and how the Bill of Rights and additional amendments have played a significant role in our evolving history. The nonpartisan and nonpolitical Liberty Day Institute is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization since 1996 and is based in Denver. Its mission is to educate youth about the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution.
