Our government is broken; Congress, gripped by rigid partisanship, seems unable or unwilling to initiate the reforms needed to fix it.  In this situation, the US Constitution gives the People the authority to take action (through state legislatures) by calling a convention for proposing amendments to the US Constitution.


A convention of the states is legal, reasonable, and has historical precedentMoreover, the process is safe and effective

Is it Time for an Article V Convention?

We agree that something is broken: it is self-evident that our voices are not being heard and that our national government no longer serves us but itself. Where we might differ is not in our observations of today’s problems but in how to solve them. Regardless of the ideas of how to remedy what is wrong, the process to do so is clear and it is found in the fifth part (Article 5) of the United States Constitution, namely, a convention of states called by Congress on the application of two-thirds of the state legislatures.

"Our Constitution works; our great republic is a government of laws and not of men. Here, the people rule."

- Gerald R. Ford 
“I think it will take people – true patriots – on both sides of the aisle to say,  ‘Enough of this nonsense. We should work together for the good of the people of the United States.’”

- Ruth Bader Ginsburg

"The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil constitution, are worth defending against all hazards. And it is our duty to defend them against all attacks."

- Samuel Adams
