The Imminent Threat of a Constitutional Convention
Co-sponsored by the Center for Media and Democracy and Common Cause.
The Far Right is waging a dangerous, dark money campaign to force a constitutional convention that could radically rewrite the U.S. Constitution and severely hamper the federal government’s ability to address some of today’s most pressing problems. California Governor Gavin Newsom’s recent pursuit of a constitutional convention to specifically address gun violence could inadvertently advance those efforts. What threats does the Far Right’s strategy pose to our foundational governing institutions and the hard-won progress America has achieved in our pursuit of a truly pluralistic, multiracial democracy?
Join ACS, the Center for Media and Democracy, and Common Cause for a conversation on the lurking dangers of a constitutional convention.
