We at Cal State-DH YAL had a very good Constitution Week involving three different events. We planned this several weeks in advance by reserving the necessary space. We also received several shipments of materials for Constitution Week from YAL National, and we paid for the events using a grant from YAL and our student government.
In the process of advertising the events we contacted over 70 clubs on campus, spoke in several classes, sent the information to dozens of professors and department heads, and posted flyers all over campus.
On September 15 we hosted the SoCal ACLU who came down for a forum on the status of civil liberties today in the United States. We had 22 people attend! The discussion ranged from NSA spying to the militarization of police. The event concluded with a Q & A session between the students and the ACLU staff.
On September 17, we tabled outside the student union to teach students their rights when dealing with the police. To help in this endeavor, we passed out pocket Constitutions and business cards containing information concerning students' rights when they are pulled over while driving or approached by police at home.
Over the course of three hours we passed out over a 1,000 of these cards, and overall the students were excited about the knowledge!
