This week we're recapping some of the greatest highlights of the year for the Convention of States movement, and the Reclaiming Liberty Leadership Summit is near the top of our list.
Not only did a record amount of grassroot activists and supporters attend the event in Orlando from all 50 states, but a familiar face announced his return to the organization.
"I called Mark [Meckler] and said, is there a way I can return to Convention of States," Michael Farris said at the Summit. "So as of January 1, I'll be doing two things. I'll be helping ADF (Alliance Defending Freedom) and I will be enthusiastically also helping Convention the States – and we're gonna push it over the top."
Farris co-founded Convention of States Action with Mark Meckler. He left the organization in 2017 to pursue a new endeavor as the President, CEO and General Counsel of Alliance Defending Freedom, the world’s premiere defender of religious freedom.
The Summit was a momentous part of this past year and kicking off the new year with Michael Farris back is sure to bring substantial progress in calling for an Article V convention.
"Walk with courageous hope," Farris encouraged. "When the time's right, God's gonna deliver the victory."
Other featured speakers included former Senator Rick Santorum, who said the COS movement is at the core of a generation that saves America; and Mark Levin, who proclaimed "there’s nothing more worth the fight than a Convention of States." Steve Deace said this game called America will soon end if we don't act, and We the People are currently behind on the scoreboard.
The gathering brought new friendships and allowed patriots to receive training while listening to the nation's top activists in the fight against federal government tyranny.
It takes recruiting, training, inspiring, and encouraging in order to advance forward. As the year comes to a close, we look back at the Summit with appreciation for bringing so many patriots together and cultivating a strong grassroots as we head into 2023.
As January approaches, consider the ways you can step up to the day's challenges in new ways. At COS, we have high hopes for 2023, and we can't do it without the help of our growing grassroots.
