New Jersey Action Prompt

New Jersey Action Prompt

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?

Join our team as a District Captain!

Our goal is to find one District Captain in every New Jersey 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?

Find talking points here.

If you'd like a Convention of States leader to attend a meeting with you and your legislator, contact your state’s legislative liaison.

The Garden State is Standing for Freedom!

We've done it! T​he Convention of States Project's application was officially filed in the New Jersey legislature! Assemblyman Michael Patrick​ Carroll's and Senator Joseph Pennacchio's companion resolutions (ACR84/​SCR42) seek an amendment-proposing convention of the states to restore our Republic. Its official title will be "Applies to Congress for an Article V Convention of States to limit certain powers of the federal government and terms of office." 


In conformity with the resolutions filed in 38 states in 2015 and already passed in 4 states, ACR84 & SCR42 set the agenda of the meeting to consider amendments that "impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, and limit the terms of office for its officials and for members of Congress." The process has officially begun, and we will be keeping you updated at every step along the way. Please take a moment right now to contact your state legislators and ask them to support ACR84 & SCR42.


LETTER: Back the implementation of Article V

This is a great letter to the editor written by a Convention of States volunteer in New Jersey.

Many Americans feel that our federal government has demonstrated a fair amount of overreach during past presidential administrations and is not on the right path toward preserving our Constitutional rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. A recent concern that New Jerseyans have is the Common Core State Standards program and the federal government’s influence over it. Net neutrality proposed by the FCC is another concern.
