how can we do it?
Updating the Constitution
We are creating the space for all People to contribute perspectives in a positive direction. We propose a modern-day Constitutional Convention for and by the People.
Article V of our current Constitution allows Amendments to be proposed one of two ways. Either upon application and convention of the Several states or by a proposal from congress, thereafter, ratified by the several States.
We are using Article V to add an Amendment to our Constitution that calls for a convention to happen within one year.
Our amendment elects entirely new delegates for the convention. We will have up to 195 geographic and shared interests delegates. We will vote on the general approval of certain recognized human rights, and the delegates will take no more than 12 months to define our new foundations.
Our amendment includes a public comment period that grants access to the operations and process of Convention Delegates, and it compensates those that are working respectfully and thoughtfully for our renewed foundation.
The original writers of the Constitution intended the constitution to change with the times.
"The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress; Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the first Article; and that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate."
