We are searching for excited individuals who are ready to rally the troops in their state and get involved in our quickly growing nationwide effort to call a convention of the states. Those in leadership roles will be instrumental in speaking at public events, raising awareness and educating the public, and coordinating volunteers in their state to stand behind supportive State Representatives. To start, these leadership opportunities are completely on a volunteer basis, but as COS project grows, may have opportunity to be paid positions. This is a movement of we the people. Ready to take a stand for Liberty?

Looking forward to working with you!  ~Laura Fennig (laurafennig@selfgovern.com)
