RESTORING THE PROMISE OF AMERICA
Defending America is a special initiative by The Epoch Times that draws on our nation’s principles and rich history to educate the public on the critical issues facing the United States today, such as constitutional rights, censorship, integrity of elections, and the threat of socialism. It launched on Independence Day 2021.
CONSTITUTION MONTH ACTIVITIES
As part of our Defending America initiative, we’re focusing on a critical issue every month for our conversations. We will have a variety of activities related to each topic to keep the discussion going.

America is a nation governed by the consent of the governed. And so our first topic will focus on our great U.S. Constitution. A number of activities this month have been organized to educate the public on the significance of the Constitution, how current events are threatening our constitutional rights, and what the world would lose if the U.S. Constitution were lost.
