The next generation of conservative leaders have been watching and waiting for a cause where they can make a tangible difference and be a part of history in the making. For years, they felt hopeless.

But today, the scene looks very different.

Ben Shapiro has teamed up with Convention of States to funnel his millions of young listeners into the fight to call a Convention of States.

In a matter of weeks, tens of thousands of young activists have flooded into the movement, taking on leadership positions, and being trained to take back their power from Washington, D.C.

These are their stories.

Shelby M., San Antonio, Texas, State Content Writer

“When Ben Shapiro mentioned the Convention of States on his podcast, that was all I needed to dive in and investigate. I had spent years feeling powerless and frustrated with the growing size and corruption of the federal government, but with COS, I suddenly saw the opportunity to DO something! Instead of just complaining, I could be a part of a team that was working toward a solution. It was so empowering!”

Lucas C., Columbia, South Carolina, District Captain

“When I heard Ben Shapiro support COS on his podcast, I knew it was something I wanted to get behind. Soon after, I saw I could apply for a leadership position and knew that’s what I wanted to do. Bottom line, I want to help with the COS Project to try to create a better country for my son.”

Seth B., Grandville, Michigan, District Captain

“If we do not limit government, we will find it ‘saving’ us from harm in every area of our lives. Convention of States could turn our beloved country from the statism it pursues.”

Danielle P., Denver, Colorado, District Captain

“I believe power should be returned to the American people. I am confident that we can change our state legislator’s positions on COS with more persistence and education.”


Abigail K. Findlay, Ohio, District Captain

“I believe in limiting the federal government and I fully support the idea of a Convention of States. It is incredible to be a part of something so monumental.”





Nathan B., Casper, Wyoming, District Captain

“I have always felt very strongly about politics and I have a big problem with people my age (25) resorting to hate, terror and manipulation tactics to progress their ‘end goals’.”




Mike D., Wayland, Massachusetts, State Information Analyst

“When I heard Ben talk about COS, I immediately went online to find out more about it. I had been looking for a way to get involved in something that might keep alive the liberties that were given to us. The Convention of States Project gave me hope that there is a way for the people and the states to regain power from the federal government.”


Dustin M., Las Vegas, Nevada, District Captain

“After looking at COS, I was overwhelmed with a sense of duty. I had found something I wanted to stand for; something I feel will begin the steps necessary to repair the country. I want to be involved because I want to stand on the right side of history.”

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
