Sunday, September 11th, 4-6:00pm
Join the Women’s Center for Creative Work in the formation and pioneering of Constitution Corps, a group that will regularly meet over the election season, interpreting and exploring “We, the People”, and Constitutional Democracy through engaging in a variety of actions and regular meetings.
The first meeting of Constitution Corps takes place on Sunday September 11th, 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM at the WCCW.
The first Action of the Constitution Corps takes place on Tuesday September 13th, from 10:30 am – 12 noon at the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk Norwalk 12400 Imperial Highway Norwalk CA, 90650. There we will attend the Deputy Voter Registrar Training Session to brush up on our voter registration rules and guidelines. Upon successful completion of the hour-and-a-half session we’ll receive “The Guide to Registering Voters”, a “Deputy Registrar of Voters Certificate”, and a bundle of voter registration forms. If we are lucky we may be able to tour the building and see where the votes are counted on Election Day!
On Constitution Day, September 17th (the day the Constitution was ratified in 1787), which is a Saturday, we will make a big push to register people to vote. My Daily Constitution will be setting up a voter registration station at Clifton’s Cafeteria in Downtown Los Angeles and you are welcome to join us there, or register people wherever you may be. Our efforts will be amplified with Kiss Me I’m Voting photo opp.
The Constitution Corps will partake in a range of events – Constitution Cafés, Playing the Constitution, Kiss Me I’m Voting! Patriot, and more, both locally and in partnership with communities across the country. For information about different MDC events visit http://www.mydailyconstitution.org/mdc-events.html
Linda Pollack founded and directs My Daily Constitution. A Los Angeles based artist, Linda studied economics in Pennsylvania, and studio art in the Netherlands and in California. From 1990 through 1995 Linda worked for Amsterdam-based European Cultural Foundation, where she set up a number of initiatives in response to the war inYugoslavia, collaborating with groups including The Helsinki Monitor, Press Now, the Sarajevo Theatre Festival, Macedonian rock stars “Leb i Sol”, among others. My Daily Constitution continues Linda’s investigation into the culture of democracy as she creates new, fluid spaces where We The People can come together to discuss the challenges and possibilities of our shared civic life. MDC proposes to go beyond the visible symbols of patriotism, and invites us to explore the less visible yet no less important world of civic ideals and community engagement.
