Citizenship and the Constitution

The Constitution sets the framework for the United States government. It defines the structure of the government, the responsibilities and limitations of the three branches, and a system for modifications. For democracy to thrive, citizens need to understand how the government works, stay informed of current events, obey the laws, and participate in various civic duties.
