EVANSTON — Jeff Hymas continues his constitutional series with a look at how Americans’ rights are protected by the Constitution, titled “Rights in the Constitution,” set for Thursday, June 6, at 7 p.m. at the Uinta County Library Bridger-Carter meeting room, 701 Main Street in Evanston.
“We correctly acknowledge that our country was founded on the principle that we have God-given, unalienable rights, and that government’s proper role is constrained to protecting those rights,” a release on the event said. “So, what are those rights? Do we have the ‘right’ to have our government do certain things for us, and does that ‘right’ have anything to do with the moral code of right and wrong? As we study the Constitution and Declaration of Independence, we will look more closely at some very fundamental principles contained in those two marvelous documents in order to see more clearly what is — and what is not — the proper role of government.
This presentation is free and open to the public.
