Americans discouraged about the state of their country in the wake of recent Supreme Court rulings have cause to hope. As Michael Farris will explain during Monday’s exclusive Convention of States LIVE event, the framers of our Constitution provided a way for We the People to fight judicial tyranny.
Convention of States LIVE with Michael Farris: Fighting Judicial Tyranny will take a closer look at how an Article V Convention of States can push back against the power grabs of the Supreme Court, protecting the right of each state to decide the laws under which its citizens will live. During this one-hour online event beginning at 9pm ET on July 6, 2015, Michael will outline the realistic, effective plan to take back our country from the tyranny of the federal government.
The event will be held on this page and on our homepage on July 6 at 9pm ET.
