Declaration of Independence

West Virginia University Potomac State College will present “Constitutional Rights That Are Not in the Constitution” in recognition of Constitution Day on Monday, September 17, 2018.  The presentation will be held from 5 – 6 p.m. in the Church-McKee Arts Center, and the community is invited to this free event.

Casandra Pritts, professor of history and Nicklaus Goff, assistant professor of criminal justice at the College will present information about the Ninth Amendment and our unenumerated rights. 

Unenumerated rights are certain rights that aren’t mentioned in the Constitution, but are recognized by the U.S. Supreme Court, which may include the right to privacy, the right to dignity, the right to autonomy, and the right to travel among others.
