Putney Rd. & Linden St. Information: 802-254-5808.
PUTNEY "Debating our Rights": Unlike the first eight Amendments, each of which lays out specific protections, the Ninth protects rights that haven't been specified. What exactly are those rights? How do we decide what is a fundamental right? This amendment throws the biggest question back to the people. There are no well-worn judicial decisions, no established parameters of the debate. That's liberating and terrifying. When rights don't get adjudicated, it's not quite clear what they are. Part of our work today will be to understand the history of these human rights and what we need of them now. This series is offered by Meg Mott, professor of politics at Marlboro College. 7 p.m. (last Tues. of every month through 8/28). Free. Putney Public Library, 55 Main St. Information: 802-387-4407; Click for more info on Web in new window.
