Convention of States!


Watch Ohio Team Win State of the Year Award!

Published in Blog on October 26, 2022 by Brianna Kraemer

The Convention of States Ohio team won the State Team of the Year award in Orlando earlier this month at the Reclaiming Liberty Summit.

Undoubtedly, the Ohio team deserves such recognition for their perseverance and steadfast work to become the 20th state to pass the COS Resolution.

COSA President Mark Meckler described how the team was chosen among so many truly remarkable state teams. He said activists are at the top of the game week after week and month after month.

Meckler said the recipient of the award has the highest number of active District Captains in the country, "something we measure very closely – activity matters."

"Every day the members of the team wake up with the mission to educate, persuade and influence the citizens of their state who attend gun shows, county fairs, car shows, local festivals, and political events. Wherever people gather to celebrate, the COS team is there with banners and smiling faces," Meckler said.

Ohio has been through many ups and downs as they've pushed for a win in the Ohio Statehouse this year. They have packed hearing after hearing in Columbus this year and have patiently pushed toward passage.

While they are still pushing to cross the finish line, it WILL happen, it's just a matter of time. The Ohio legislators know this too!

Without a doubt, this accomplishment comes thanks to the great leaders and dedicated, skillful volunteers. The state team is led by two true servant leaders, Co-State Directors Bill Scott and Amy Frederick (2019 volunteer of the year).

We appreciate Team Ohio and their contributions to saving America!

Petition your state legislator

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 to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement 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 an 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 Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. 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]
