Welcome to the Citizen Uprising in Connecticut!
In 2012 a majority of the General Assembly signed on to a letter, adding Connecticut to the growing list of state calling for the 28th Amendment. This is just the beginning.
Our citizen leaders, volunteers, and allies are working to pass HJR 35 - elevating the call on Congress to pass an amendment into an application for an Article V convention of the states. We can also keep working to translate the support in Connecticut into votes in Congress, and get (and keep!) Connecticut ready to ratify. Translating the cross-partisan support for the 28th Amendment into support by our elected representatives in D.C. is no small task, so we can't rest on our laurels. Whether you are new to grassroots action or a seasoned community organizer, there is lots to do.
American Promise is working to help connect people in Connecticut who want to get involved and help out. Take the Pledge to call for a 28th Amendment so we can keep you up to date with what's going on in the Uprising.
In the meantime, you can get started with easy-to-use tools. Take them out for a spin.
