The Chattanooga Chapter of the Federal Bar Association, in partnership with the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee, will host a public reading of the United States Constitution to celebrate Constitution Day on Sept. 17.
The event will be held at the Joel W. Solomon Federal Building, 900 Georgia Ave., on the courthouse steps from 11:30 a.m. to approximately 1 p.m.
"The public is invited to attend this event to join the FBA and the Court in celebrating our status as 'We the People' and in commemorating the document and law that formed the bedrock of our beloved country." officials said.
The Constitution will be read in 110 segments that take one minute or less to read for the average reader. If you would like to read a segment, sign up here and check-in at the event when you arrive. Signing up in advance is not required, but would be appreciated.
You do not have to arrive at 11:30 a.m. to read—you may arrive at any time during the event, so long as readings remain available. Readings will primarily be assigned on a first-come first-filled basis.
