Texas patriots at the Property Tax Rally send a musical warning to the legislature — April 16, 2019.
The Texas Legislature passed the COS resolution, SJR 2, on May 4, 2017. But our mission is far from over! We are now focused on the larger goal of the Convention of States movement: building the largest grassroots movement in the history of our nation.
Because of Texas's size and role as a state full of liberty-loving patriots, we have a unique role in the future of America and in the Convention of States movement.
ENGAGEMENT is our watchword! Not only do we need to stay engaged in order to bring about the ultimate ratification of the amendments that will be proposed at the convention, but more importantly, engagement is necessary to preserve America as a self-governing nation where We the People decide.
Within the Texas volunteer team, we have established four subteams to help focus our engagement. If you are interested in participating on any of these teams, please contact the leaders listed.
- Education Team - educating our fellow Texas on constitutional principles and Article V
- Legislative Team - promoting Texas legislation consistent with COS principles
- Outreach Team - helping spread the COS message among new constituencies
- Strike Force Team - using technology and communication tools in strategic ways to support COS calls to action
We always have a need for volunteers in Texas! We have a specific need for a State Grassroots Coordinator, and there are also House districts that are looking for a District Captain. See the Texas Action Prompt section below for more information or click here for a more complete list of positions.
Can you easily travel to the Capitol in Austin, sometimes on short notice? We are building a Capitol Brigade of volunteers who can be available to show up at key legislative events during the 2019 session.
Have you served in the armed forces? America needs you to defend the Constitution once again and join with fellow veterans in your support of the Convention of States.
The grassroots are the key to victory -- high numbers ensure success. So are you ready to talk to your friends about the Convention of States Project?
Our goal is to find one District Captain in every Texas state house district. The District Captain's mission is simple: find 100 people in your district willing to contact their state legislators in support of Convention of States legislation next session.
It doesn't take a huge time commitment to make a difference. Five constituent phone calls is often enough to move an issue to the top of a state legislator's priority list. In person meetings are even more effective.
Get involved today by reaching out to your state legislators. Don't know what to say?
Could you serve as a State Grassroots Coordinator to help train house district grassroots coordinators? The State GC motivates and inspires the House District Teams led by the District Captains with ideas for recruitment and activities to achieve the 100 volunteer goal for each house district.
