Support the Restoration of the ABA Memorial to Magna Carta
Despite being written nearly 800 years ago, Magna Carta is highly relevant today. As a cornerstone for concepts of freedom and liberty, Magna Carta provided a fledgling country with the fundamental principles for drafting its inaugural governing document – the U.S. Constitution.
In 1957, the American Bar Association erected a memorial to Magna Carta at Runnymede, outside of London, to honor this historic document that continues to shape the rule of law throughout the world. Although the document itself is timeless, the memorial is not. After more than 50 years of tribute, the ABA Memorial is in need of repair.
Please support the refurbishment of the Memorial and help set a precedent that today’s freedoms are preserved by remembering our past.
The public service and educational programs of the American Bar Association receive funding through the ABA Fund for Justice and Education (FJE). The FJE qualifies as an exempt fund under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and all contributions to the FJE are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
