Constitution Hall Pass: The Bill of Rights

The first 10 amendments to the Constitution guarantee so many of our rights and freedoms that we use every single day. Join us as we learn the story of the Bill of Rights, from the time of the Founders right up to today! You’ll see how James Madison originally proposed the Bill of Rights, and how it was up to Congress and the states to decide which amendments made the cut. We’ll show you which rights are actually protected by the Bill of Rights, and you’ll even learn about how students just like you have used those amendments to stand up for their principles—even if it meant taking their case all the way to the Supreme Court! Come along and get to know your rights as we take a look at the Bill of Rights!
