Renew your commitment to the Constitution of the United States!

DECLARATION OF COMMITMENT

The League of Women Voters of West Virginia is a member of the West Virginia Civics Literacy Council which was created in 2007 by the state Legislature to foster civic education and citizenship. For the past five years, the Council has planned events to celebrate Constitution Day on September 17.

In 2012, the Council is expanding beyond the focus on a single day and asking people to think about the place of the Constitution in their lives as citizens: What does the Constitution mean to you? Do you have a personal connection to the Constitution? What does it mean to be patriotic?

As you ponder these questions, the League of Women Voters invites you to sign a Declaration of Commitment to the basic tenets and principles set forth in the Constitution of the United States. The Preamble to the Constitution exemplifies those principles:

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

DECLARATION OF COMMITMENT

I pledge a renewed commitment to the basic tenets and principles set forth in the Constitution of the United States, a living document that has provided the framework for our constitutional democracy for over 200 years.
