Remember Maggie from Northern Exposure? Turns out she is a founder and the co-chair of Constituting America. Maggie, or Janine Turner, as her mom knows her, will be at Aims Community College on Wednesday from 3:30 to 4:30 PM.
According to Turner’s Website:
“This (Constituting America) is a foundation I started in 2010 and co-chair with Cathy Gillespie. Our mission is to educate American citizens and students about the relevancy of the United States Constitution in a hip and cool way. Our goal is to get the United States Constitution into the mainstream cultural thought. We have done this by holding a 90-day forum for adults on our site where we studied the United States Constitution and the 85 Federalist Papers. We also started a scholarship contest for students, the “We the People 9.17 Contest,” offering a contest for best short film, best original song, best PSA, best essay, best artwork and best poem. We filmed a documentary of our inaugural winners. Please watch it on our website and encourage your schools to view it in their classrooms. It is 47 minutes. Perfect for the classroom. Also, we are starting Patriot Clubs across the country; a monthly meeting where kids of all ages and adults study the U.S. Constitution. Please join us in this effort. We are a 501c3, non-profit organization.”
Turner is scheduled to speak on the importance of the Constitution. Anyone interested in attending should contact Shannon McCasland at Shannon.firstname.lastname@example.org.
