Once most people understand how our government is supposed to operate under the US Constitution, they wonder just what they can do to help get our federal government back inside the fence of the Constitution. Recently, Michael Farris, founder of Home School Legal Defense Association (and no stranger to homeschoolers around the country) cofounded the Convention of States (COS) Project. The COS Project is a national grassroots effort to encourage the states to file applications under Article V of the Constitution for the lawful and orderly process given to us by the framers to call for a Convention of States for the express purpose of proposing amendments to the US Constitution that would "limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government". This session will explain the national project and how individuals can become involved in their own state in order to directly make a difference.
