Indiana

A big THANK YOU to all our state grassroots supporters for ALL the hard work that was done and for answering our Calls to Action statewide.Your calls, emails and presence at the Statehouse played a huge part in helping PASS the Convention of States resolution during the Indiana 2016 legislative session. The passage of this resolution makes Indiana the sixth state that has now applied under the provisions of Article V of the Constitution of the United States, for the calling of a convention of the states limited to proposing amendments to the Constitution of the United States 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.

Our work is not finished though. While the other states continue to work towards passage we will continue to grow our grassroots model and prepare for proposal and then ratification of amendments. Our team will continue to educate the public regarding Article V of the Constitution and the types of amendments that are needed to rein in an out of control federal government.

How can I help? Diane Gomez, IN State Director says, "Sign the petition and ask your friends to do the same. Call your state legislators and ask them to honor the U.S. Constitution by calling for a convention to propose amendments to limit the power of Washington, D.C. Better yet, join our team as a District Captain or Social Media Warrior!"


Numbers ensure victory. 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 Indiana 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?

If you'd like a Convention of States leader to attend a meeting with you and your legislator, contact IN Legislative Liaison, Jack Dearth.
