Stop a Constitution Convention

 

 

What is Stop a Con-Con?

What we're warning about on this page is the possible rewriting of the U.S. Constitution at an Article V convention called by Congress in response to applications from 34 or more states. Such a convention (also known as a constitutional convention, a Con-Con, or a convention of the states) would have the inherent power to rewrite the Constitution, which could mean the end of over two centuries of security for our rights and freedoms as Americans. We're only six states away from the required applications by 34 states to force Congress to call an Article V constitutional convention for the supposed purpose of proposing a Balanced Budget Amendment (BBA).
