Senate Joint Resolution 2 (SJR 2) calls for an Article V constitutional convention. If enough states join this call, a convention would take place where delegates would have almost unlimited legal authority to rewrite our federal Constitution.
There are no rules or guides in the U.S. Constitution for an Article V convention. This means Governor Abbott’s plan for a dangerous convention would put all of our constitutional rights and civil liberties – everything from our freedom of speech to the right to vote – up for grabs.
Write a message to your state senator now and tell them to reject an Article V convention!
