The League of Women Voters of West Virginia is a member of the WV Civics Literacy Council, which was created in 2007 by the state legislature to foster civics education and citizenship among WV’s youth. The council has sponsored celebrations of Constitution Day over the past several years. This year, the council has designated September as Constitution Month and has compiled a list of events and activities taking place throughout the month. In conjunction with the State Dept. of Education, the council has planned the following program:
DECLARATION OF COMMITMENT
. Recognition of 9-11 through recommitment to civic literacy, patriotism and respect for the Constitution
The event will take place on the State Capitol grounds on September 8th at 1:00 pm. This 30 minute program will feature school performances, remarks from a 9/11 volunteer, and the signing of a declaration of commitment reaffirming our dedication to the ideas and values of our Constitution. The Declaration of Commitment will remain at the Cultural Center for all West Virginians to sign.
Hope you can attend the event on the 8th and/or take advantage of some of the other activities that are occurring throughout the month.
