What is "Celebrate Freedom Week"

CELEBRATE FREEDOM WEEK was started in Texas by Rick Green while serving as a State Representative in March of 2001.

“I was sitting in my capitol office reading an article about a poll that said barely half of Texans could name even one of the five freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment to the Constitution and only 5% could name two of those freedoms. I was appalled…then I tried to name them myself and was embarrassed to find that even as an attorney, legislator, and political junkie, I could not name the five freedoms guaranteed by the 1st Amendment. I knew it was time to do something to make sure the next generation was more appreciative and more aware of our freedoms and that is what led to Celebrate Freedom Week.” -Rick Green
