Chief Among U.S. Constitution Principles is Freedom; All Must Remember How Important the Constitution is for Protecting Moms and Families
September 21, 2020
DAYTON, OHIO— Moms for America® (www.MomsforAmerica.us), a national movement calling on mothers to restore values such as motherhood, marriage, womanhood and patriotism, once again celebrates Constitution Day and Constitution Week this year, September 17-23, 2020, to mark the importance of the principles of the U.S. Constitution, especially our freedom.
“Constitution Week serves as an important reminder, especially during this 100th Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage—the right to vote, of how important the Constitution is for protecting moms and families,” said Kimberly Fletcher, a mother of eight, wife of a military husband and founder and president of Moms for America®.
“In our current culture, civil rights are being violated because people don’t know what the Constitution says,” Fletcher added. “It’s more important than ever for Americans to know the protections and the freedoms afforded to them by the Constitution. There is nothing more important that moms and women could do to speak volumes to America today than to get out and vote their values for their families.
“We hope this will be a wakeup call to women who don’t vote to get registered now and get to the polls in November,” continues Fletcher. “Moms, our families are truly at stake! If just one percent of you vote, you can change the very fabric of our country and help restore the values that still make America great today. If you won’t do it for yourselves, I implore you to do it for your kids!”
Last Thursday, on Constitution Day, President Trump announced that he will be signing an Executive Order, “1776 Commission” to establish a national commission to promote patriotic education and the Constitution.
“Moms for America fully supports President Trump’s ‘1776 Commission’ and we are incredibly grateful that the president recognizes the need to teach future generations the real and remarkable story of America,” Fletcher said. “We thank President Trump for taking this extremely important matter seriously and for doing something about it.”
Moms for America’s video, entitled, “Meet Dawn: What Moms Care About,” features Dawn Damiani, anAmerican momandState Liaison for Moms for America, talking about her concerns, and why voting is so important:
“The constitution guarantees and protects my freedom—the freedom to express my opinion; the freedom to voice my political opinion without the fear of government punishing me for it; the freedom to live out my life and faith; the freedom to raise my family with values and patriotism,” says Damiani.

“Freedom to choose. Freedom to worship. Freedom to assemble. We have recently felt the pains of these freedoms being highly restricted,” said Fletcher. “Moms, if we don’t vote, our freedoms can and will be taken away. It’s time to maximize the power of our voice. Stand up for your freedom and vote your values on Election Day.”
To help spread awareness of the importance of voting, Moms for America started MomVote this summer. MomVote 2020 is a comprehensive, micro-targeted, strategic grassroots initiative to get out the mom vote. The deadline to sign up is October 15.
Fletcher added, “It’s a devastating burden on our country that today’s population is largely unaware of the importance of the US Constitution. It bears repeating: People need to understand how important the Constitution is for protecting moms and families.”
Constitution Day and Constitution Week (September 17-23) were signed into law by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1953 to commemorate the signing of the Constitution of the United States, recognizing the Constitution’s importance. Originated by Ohio mom, Olga Weber, who felt that American citizens were taking their freedoms too much for granted, she wanted to ensure that people did not lose sight of the importance of this document in the foundation of our country and in our individual families and worked tirelessly until these resolutions were passed. Moms for America continues that mission of ensuring people, especially moms, are aware of these principles.
Moms for America is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) education corporation dedicated to promoting a foundation of liberty through the mothers of America in their homes, within their communities, and with their vote.
