What is a Convention of States?
A Convention of States is a convention called by the state legislatures for the purpose of proposing amendments to the Constitution. This power is granted to them under Article V of the Constitution. It is not a constitutional convention and cannot throw out the Constitution. A Convention of States can only propose amendments that fit within the topic of the applications adopted by the state legislatures.
Who Are We?
Convention of States Action is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization founded for the purpose of stopping the runaway power of the federal government. We believe Washington, D.C. is broken and will not fix itself. The federal government is spending this country into the ground, seizing power from the states, and taking liberty from the people. We have a solution as big as the problem.
Why Call a Convention of States?
Washington, D.C. will never voluntarily relinquish power, no matter who is elected. It is time for American citizens to take a stand against tyranny and make a legitimate coordinated nationwide effort to curb the power of the federal government. Only a Convention of States has the constitutional power to repair the damage and halt the federal government from further eroding the liberties of the people. We have allowed the representative government become our rulers.
