The Colorado James Madison Initiative will have a Capitol Visit Kickoff on Wednesday, March 13, in preparation for a celebration of the birthday of James Madison (March 16, 1751).
There will be over 100 5th graders from the metro Denver area.
"“Here come the redshirts!” Dressed in their red Liberty Day Kids T-shirts, the students will spend the morning quizzing legislators, lobbyists, staff, and visitors on the U.S. Constitution – and we encourage you to quiz them back! Speaker of the House Mark Ferrandino has also graciously welcomed a group of 5th grade students to read the Declaration of Independence on the House floor – something that’s never been done before!
The reading of the Declaration will begin at around 9 a.m. Wednesday morning, with quizzing events beginning at around 9:30. All are welcome to join us at these exciting festivities, and we hope to see you there. For more information on this event and for media inquiries, please contact President Jimmy Sengenberger by email at Jimmy@LibertyDay.org."
