Declaration of Independence Road Trip




The Mission
To take an original copy of the Declaration of Independence on a three-and-a-half year, cross-country tour.

The Goal
To bring the “People’s Document” directly to the people and to inspire them to see citizenship as an opportunity to participate in civic life, to exercise their rights, and to vote.

Check out the website to register to vote or to find out which stop is next on the tour!

NOTE:
On July 4, 2001, a group of actors came together at Independence Hall in Philadelphia to perform the Declaration of Independence as a work of theater. This is now available for online viewing at this website!
