Federal Bar Association Kansas City Constitution Day 2021

Friday, September 17th at 9:30a.m.

Constitution Day public reading at the Robert J. Dole Federal Courthouse in KCK was a moving experience. Due to COVID and other considerations, we held the program in the ceremonial courtroom and livestreamed it through the court’s YouTube page. We kicked the program off with an address from our Chief Judge Julie Robinson, which set the stage for a wonderful reading! The preamble was delivered by the daycare kids of Uncle Sam’s daycare, who practiced for days on it-you will never appreciate the preamble more after watching their recital. We then had a seamless flow of volunteer readers for the remainder of the Constitution. Our volunteers consisted of students from elementary to middle school, lawyers, and judges who did a fantastic job reading this crucial document aloud for our in-person and virtual audience!
