South Carolina

Current Status

We at the South Carolina Convention of States (COS) Project want to welcome you to this nationwide effort.  We believe government overreach has put the very survival of the country at risk.  Our founders were truly inspired; the solution is in the Original Constitution, in Article V.  We must hold a Convention of States.

As you may already know twelve states: Georgia, Alaska, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Indiana, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arizona, North Dakota, Texas, and Missouri have passed the COS Application; so what is there left to do?  Article V requires 2/3rds of the states to apply for the same issue; therefore we need twenty-two more states to pass our Application.  The only way this will happen is to build citizen demand through a grassroots army in every State!  We must activate our friends and family across the nation to stand at the ready to contact their state legislators so that when the COS Application comes up in their state they can make timely demands that it be passed!  State legislators do respond when they see an engaged, informed, and motivated electorate.

That’s where you come in!  We need your Help!  South Carolina’s General Assembly has been considering the COS Application since 2014.  They have not passed it simply because the People are not demanding it!  However, we are a “must win” state for this nationwide effort.  Therefore beginning in January 2018 we will begin a volunteer surge effort aimed at putting increased pressure on our State Legislators.  To apply this pressure we will be using our statewide volunteers as our “boots on the ground” visiting the statehouse and their elected officials in weekly organized groups.  You would only be asked to join one group, most likely the group coming from your local area.   This surge effort will begin with a statehouse rally at the capital in January 2018.  The rally will include several national figures who are involved in the Convention of States Project.  Make no mistake, there are certain elements in our state that have been working against this resolution and it will not pass without your help.

Specifically the resolutions we are seeking to pass at the statehouse in Columbia are S.86 in the Senate and H.3233 in the House.

Please get involved by signing the petition, volunteering to the degree your capacity permits, and then engaging all your like-minded contacts to do the same.

Let’s make South Carolina the 13th state to pass the Convention of States application.

The grassroots are the key to victory -- high numbers ensure success. So are you ready to talk to your friends about the Convention of States Project?

Join our team as a District Captain!

Our goal is to find one District Captain in every South Carolina state house district. The District Captain's mission is simple: find 100 people in your district willing to contact their state legislators in support of Convention of States legislation next session.

It doesn't take a huge time commitment to make a difference. Five constituent phone calls is often enough to move an issue to the top of a state legislator's priority list. In person meetings are even more effective.

Get involved today by reaching out to your state legislators. Don't know what to say?

If you'd like a Convention of States leader to attend a meeting with you and your legislator, contact your state’s legislative liaison.

Your voice is VERY important. Make it heard by sharing Convention of States with your friends and contacts. We need to double if not triple the size of our grassroots before January of us do that by encouraging everyone you know to sign our petition. That petition will automatically be sent to their statehouse Representative and Senator. It also gets them into our system so that we can call on them to help us with our Calls to Action. When we all work as a coordinated team, our legislators will get the message that they need to pass the COS resolution. Don't miss the chance to tell future generations that you stood strong for liberty!
