Constitution Day was celebrated on the morning of September 17, 2021 in Topeka, Kansas with a reading of the U.S. Constitution. The event was held on the steps of the U.S. Courthouse and was a collaboration of the Federal Bar Association and the Kansas Bar Association. Hon. Nancy Moritz of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit started the reading. Hon. Holly Teeter of the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas joined, as did several state district judges, the Kansas Attorney General, the Clerk of the U.S. District Court, the Acting U.S. Attorney, the Director of the Kansas Board of Indigent Defense Services, practicing attorneys from the state and federal bars, and other members of the public. We enjoyed a great reading of the Constitution, great weather, pocket Constitutions, and even Constitution-themed cookies.
