Leeds Public School will host the pop-up exhibit The Bill of Rights and You until March 3. This exhibit commemorates the 225th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights (the first 10 amendments to the US constitution). It explores the origins of those first 10 amendments, illustrates how each amendment protects US citizens, and looks at how Americans exercise the rights outlined in the amendments.

This is brought to us by the National Traveling Exhibits Service, North Dakota State Humanities Council and the Federation of State Humanities Councils.
