Federal Bar to host public reading of U.S. Constitution

The Chattanooga Chapter of the Federal Bar Association, in partnership with the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee, will host a public reading of the U.S. Constitution to celebrate Constitution Day on Tuesday, Sept. 17.

The event will be held on the courthouse steps of the Joel W. Solomon Federal Building (900 Georgia Ave.) from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.

The public is invited to attend the event to join the FBA in commemorating the document and law that formed the nation’s bedrock.

The Constitution will be read in 110 segments that take one minute or less to read for the average reader.

To receive a link to sign up to read a segment, email Russell_Eslinger@tned.uscourts.gov.

Signing up in advance is not required, but would be appreciated. Readings will primarily be assigned on a first-come, first-filled basis.

Participants will not have to arrive at 11:30 a.m. to read, but rather may arrive at any time during the event as long as slots are available.
