The 917 Society started this petition to Citizens

The Problem: We the people are in danger of losing our God given freedoms and liberties guaranteed under our U.S. Constitution. Over the last several decades Civics and Constitution Education have been neglected in our classrooms. We can not protect our rights and freedoms if we do not understand that our Constitution was created to protect us and to limit the power of our government. The lack of Constitution and Civics Education has gotten us to the point today where according to a recent survey by the Heritage Foundation, Americans know more about the Kardashians than about our Constitution. This is a problem for every American that believes in our Country and our Constitution. 

The Solution: In 2004 Congress passed public law 108-447 that states all schools that receive federal funds are to have a program on the Constitution on our around Constitution Day which is September 17th. When I was asked by a former civil rights activist when I had last read MY Constitution, I realized I had never read it nor considered it MINE. I decided to take action and formed The 917 Society to provide a free program for 8th grade students each year to honor Constitution Day across America. www.917society.org
