Vienna Businesses Celebrate Liberty Amendments Month,
June 19 - July 19, 2021
Register YOUR business specials or events to Celebrate the Town of Vienna Liberty Amendments Month! Celebrate a specific amendment, host a fundraiser, or just embrace all of the Liberty Amendments from June 19- July 19!
We will run continuous promotions for all business specials throughout Liberty Amendments Month!
This will be a great, month long opportunity to promote your business, celebrate our diverse businesses, and show our support of the Amendments that continue to provide a way for our imperfect union to become a more perfect union over time.
The Vienna Business Association will be promoting all Vienna businesses who wish to host events, specials and promotions during this month. We will also be providing our participating businesses with bookmarks listing the 4 Liberty Amendments, to distribute to your customers.
We will be hosting month-long give-a-ways for folks who collect all 4 amendment bookmarks and post their pics to social media at the hashtag (to follow). We are looking to educate the public on the 4 Liberty Amendments, and circulate consumers to shop at a variety of businesses.
If your business is interested in participating, please complete the VBA application by clicking the "register" link.
If you are unclear about specials to host and need some guidance, do not hesitate to contact me (Peggy James) at email@example.com!
What is Liberty Amendments Month?
Our nation is uniquely bound together through rights that have been established by the United States Constitution, which provides a way for our imperfect union to become more perfect over time. Passage of the 13th, 14th, 15th, and 19th Amendments, which now are enshrined in our United States Constitution, grants rights to people who previously were excluded from full participation. The 4th of July celebrates the birth of our nation. Liberty Amendments Month celebrates these four amendments to our Constitution that, together, provide a common opportunity for all to help shape our nation and benefit our diverse heritage. Together, we are amazing.
Liberty Amendments Month will start on June 19 (Juneteenth) and run through July 19, 2021. Each week of Liberty Amendments Month will focus on one of the Constitutional amendments that extends rights and liberties to U.S. citizens who originally were excluded from the Constitution. More details are available in our event plan, which will be available here soon.

If you would like to participate, but are unable to host a promotion at you place of business, we are also looking for financial sponsors and volunteers to help support the many activities going on during the months!
