Seal of the State of Nevada

WHEREAS, President Dwight D. Eisenhower established May 1, 1958, to be Law Day as a day of national dedication to the principles of government under law; and

WHEREAS, three years later, Congress designated May 1 as the official date for Law Day for the cultivation of the respect for laws that are vital to the democratic way of life and upholding elements of society; and

WHEREAS, Law Day serves as a reminder to Nevadans to pause and consider the role of law in our society and appreciation of our liberties; and

WHEREAS, the 2022 Law Day theme is “Toward a More Perfect Union: The Constitution in Times of Change.” The goal of this theme is to emphasize how the Constitution is a dynamic document, that not only outlines a blueprint for government, but also establishes mechanisms for change; and

WHEREAS, the Constitution also affirms our loyalty to the United States and of our faith in the ideals of equality and justice under law and in our relations with each other; and

WHEREAS, on Law Day I encourage Nevadans to uphold our commitments to the rule of law and celebrate its protection of the freedoms we enjoy in the Silver State;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, STEVE SISOLAK, GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF NEVADA, do hereby proclaim May 1, 2022, as

LAW DAY U.S.A.
