Protect our Constitution: Reject any calls for an Article V Convention

Text reads "Defend our rights. Reject & rescind calls for an Article V convention." over a picture of fists raised in solidarity

Under Article V of the U.S. Constitution, Congress is required to hold a constitutional convention if two-thirds of state legislatures call for one. And right now, we’re just a handful of states away.

There are NO rules for this type of convention in the Constitution. That means the delegates could be unelected and totally unaccountable – and once the convention began, they could shred our First Amendment protections, gut environmental regulations, roll back civil rights advances, and worse.

Far-right groups like the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) are trying to get this done behind closed doors and out of the public eye. But Common Cause is shining a spotlight on their sinister efforts in state after state – and so far, we have successfully rolled back calls for an Article V Convention in Colorado, New Hampshire, Delaware, and others.

We need to show our lawmakers that we’re paying attention -- and that we won’t let them gamble with our rights. Add your name now to defend our Constitution.

We the People will not allow unelected, unaccountable delegates to write their agenda into our Constitution. Our state lawmakers must stand firm - and reject and rescind calls for an Article V Convention.
