About Convention of States

The Convention of States Project is recruiting and mobilizing a permanent army of trained political activists in 3,000 state house and legislative districts across the country. These district captains will each recruit 100 people, who will call or write their state legislators, voicing their support for a Convention of States. In other words, we have more than a general philosophy; we have a well-organized strategy.
