Annual Independence Day Readings

VPIS has sponsored and organized a reading of our founding documents for over 35 years on the fourth of July.

The 2020 reading has been provided as a video due to Covid-19 precautions. See the video on the home page and follow along with the readings booklet.



Typically citizens take turns reading these documents:

Fairfax Resolves

Virginia Declaration of Rights

Bill of Rights

Declaration of Independence

Emancipation Proclamation

Pledge of Allegiance
