National Constitution Center

Founding Date

The National Constitution Center is an independent, nonprofit organization that serves as America’s leading platform for constitutional education and debate, fulfilling its congressional charter “to disseminate information about the U.S. Constitution on a nonpartisan basis.” The first structure devoted to the blueprint of American democracy, the Constitution brings the leading conservative and liberal thought leaders, people of all ages and perspectives, across America and around the world, to learn about, debate, and celebrate the greatest vision of human freedom in history, the U.S. Constitution. They host interactive exhibitions and constitutional conversations and inspire active citizenship by celebrating the American constitutional tradition.
