On July 4th we celebrate the 241st anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Since Goodwill’s mission is to transform lives and communities through the power of education and employment, we thought it might make for informative and entertaining content to find some common thread between Goodwill’s mission and America’s Independence Day. So how about the employment status of the signers of the declaration?
Not surprisingly, many were lawyers, others land owners, but a few may surprise you! Visit this page on the declaration and the U.S. Constitution for the full list.
From all of us at Goodwill of Greater Washington, Happy Independence Day!
