Constitution Day Miami 2014

On Wednesday, September 17, hundreds of prominent civic leaders, elected officials, public servants, veterans and members of the business and philanthropic communities gathered at the Freedom Tower at Miami Dade College in downtown Miami to celebrate Constitution Day at a special event benefitting Legal Services of Greater Miami, Inc., and Dade Legal Aid. Constitution Day is a federal observance honoring the U.S. Constitution and the rights it bestows on United States citizens.

Serving as hosts to the event were the law firm of Higer Lichter Givner in partnership with legal and community organizations Dade County Bar Association; Florida Association of Women Lawyers – Miami-Dade Chapter; Gwen S. Cherry Black Women Lawyers Association; Cuban American Bar Association; Miami Beach Bar Association; Miami-Dade Gay and Lesbian Lawyers Association; Miami-Dade Justice Association; Wilkie D. Ferguson, Jr. Bar Association; Miami-Dade College; History/Miami; and the Eleventh Judicial Circuit Historical Society. Roar Media was the PR sponsor.

Noted journalist Tom Hudson served as master of ceremonies. As part of the event, dozens of community leaders read aloud from the Constitution. In addition, iPads and iPad cases were awarded to the middle-school and high-school winners of a Constitution-themed essay contest after the Cooper City Composite Squadron Color Guard, Civil Air Patrol and Air Force Auxiliary presented the flag.
