theme is chosen each year to provide an opportunity
to spotlight a particular aspect of the rule of law or
legal process and how it affects our daily lives. The
theme this year, "The 14th Amendment: Transforming American
Democracy" provides the opportunity to explore the many ways
that the Fourteenth Amendment has reshaped American law and
society. Through its Citizenship, Due Process and Equal Protection clauses, this transformative amendment advanced the rights

the provider of choice for people with diverse challenges. Today,
Elwyn serves over 12,000 people with programs in Pennsylvania,
New Jersey, Delaware and California.
Nowhere has Elwyn been more successful than in Delaware
County, PA where they have enjoyed a unique relationship with
the community and county government. There is no better example of this than the fact that Delaware County Council has contracted with Elwyn for over 40 years to provide employment to
custodial work crews to clean four of the buildings at the Media
