Naturalization Ceremony

Every September we celebrate Constitution Day and Citizenship Day, a holiday meant to honor and celebrate the privileges and responsibilities of U.S. citizenship for both native-born and naturalized citizens. In recognition of this special observance the National Constitution Center hosts an annual Naturalization Ceremony as part of our Constitution Day celebrations, during which 50 immigrants from across the globe will take the Oath of Allegiance to officially become citizens of the United States. The Honorable John R. Padova, senior judge of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, will preside over the ceremony. National Constitution Center President and CEO Jeffrey Rosen will offer remarks. (Sponsored by The Constitution Center)

Student Town Hall with Mary Beth Tinker
September 18 at 1:00 pm

Students will join a discussion with Mary Beth Tinker. In 1969, at the age of 13-years-old, Tinker wore a black armband to school to protest the Vietnam War. A few other students, including her brother, joined her. The students were suspended for their actions; however, they believed their protest was a form of free speech. They took their case at the Supreme Court—and won. Tinker's story is highlighted in the Center’s new exhibit, The First Amendment.  (Sponsored by The Constitution Center)
