917 Society

With a background in social work, teaching and non-profit work, Joni has seen the impact that inspiration can have on the trajectory of a person's life. When asked by a retired lawyer if she had read her Constitution, she was inspired to take action and make a difference. Thus began her mission to empower our youth with a sense of ownership to the document, as it belongs to all citizens. The U.S. Constitution inspired Joni to know her value and her rights. She is passionate that our youth of today appreciate and honor our Constitution and understand the relevance in their lives for the present and the future. The 917 Society is on a mission to ensure our youth read and understand our Constitution and they are providing 1.5 million 8th graders in 14 states individual copies of the Constitution to honor September 17th, Constitution Day. For 2022 they plan to reach all 5.5 million students in 50 states. Joni is the mother of two grown daughters and lives on the river in Ashland City, Tennessee.
