Article V of the
U.S. Constitution

The Congress, ... , 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.





Who is
" traces its origins to the Occupy Wall Street movement of 2011-2012. It emphasizes the use of social media for communication among supporters and describes its mission as “educating Americans on the reasons to bring about an Article V convention,” and persuading them to “[a]pply their energy to pressure Congress to call for a Convention.” It does not appear to support or advocate either an amendment in a specific policy area or a specifically worded amendment, but offers a broad range of alternative amendments, accompanied by the admonition,“[m]ay the best amendments win."”

We are the product of the Inter-Occupy Article V Work Group. 

To achieve these ends, we are getting creative, seeking new ways to fix old problems, taking on both grassroots-level projects and national campaigns. As we welcome people from all walks of life; across the political spectrum. This effort exists as a result of the success of Occupy Wall Street and the Occupy movement that identified the root causes of the difficulties facing the 99 percent of Americans. We explore the potential remedies to restore our democratic institutions. Our mission is to:

1.) Educate Americans on the reasons to bring about an Article V convention.

2.) Apply their energy to pressure Congress to call for a Convention to propose amendments to the United States Constitution as described in Article V of the Constitution.

This is not a left-wing or right-wing organization. We think of ourselves as radically moderate. Compromise cannot be a dirty word when we have so much mending to do. We choose to employ a fresh course of reason and common sense that is lacking from what has become the typical debate.

We believe the American people offer the most direct course to a sustainable American economy, environment, and insure the long-term future of our nation.
