Come to the Conference on the Constitutional Convention

I’m excited to be speaking at an important conference upcoming at Harvard Law School in Cambridge, Mass.  I’d like to invite you to attend (at no charge).   It’s called the Conference on the Constitutional Convention, and more info can be found at http://conconcon.org

From both the Right and the Left, citizens are increasingly coming to recognize that our Republic does not work as our Framers intended.  Reform of any kind is stalled by those who profit from the status quo.

The Framers created the Article V Constitutional Convention as a way to escape captured government: If two-thirds of the state legislatures pass resolutions calling for a convention, then all sides will have the opportunity to argue for the changes they believe will restore or advance our Republic. Any amendment proposed must then be ratified by three-fourths of the states to become law.

On September 24th and 25th, people from across America and across the political spectrum will convene at Harvard University to discuss the advisability and feasibility of organizing towards a Constitutional Convention.

The conference’s lead organizers include proponents and opponents of an Article V convention and we actively encourage the participation of those who support a convention, those who are ambivalent, and those who oppose holding a convention at all.  The conference is sponsored by Harvard, the left-leaning Change Congress, and the right-leaning Tea Party Patriots; it’s being co-chaired by Change Congress’s Larry Lessig and the Tea Party Patriots’ Mark Meckler.  You can review the agenda and register — for free for the time being — at http://conconcon.org

Thanks so much, and we hope to see you in September.

–David Swanson

P.S. The conference is open to the general public, so please forward widely.
