Walking the Road to Freedom

The success of the Convention of States Project depends on you. This simple and realistic plan puts the power to change this nation firmly back into your hands:

  • State Leaders build a viable operation active in at least 40 states, comprised of approximately 4000 state house districts. The goal is to have a viable operation in at least 3000 of these districts by recruiting 3000 District Captains.
  • District Captains recruit at least 100 people in each district to contact their state legislators to support a convention of states, and turn out at least 25 citizen activists per district at legislative hearings.
