Citizens across Alabama
How can I join this grass-roots movement? How can
I help regenerate our state's civic life? How can I help our elected
leaders see the light?
Here are some suggestions:
First, join Alabama Citizens for Constitutional
Reform - a non-partisan group of Alabamians working across our state
to achieve a new constitution for a better Alabama. While ACCR's Foundation
works to educate the people of Alabama and their leader's about the
need for constitutional reform, ACCR is working as a nonpartisan,
nonprofit group to bring about reform.

You can join
for as little as $15 by clicking one of the buttons above. Or contact
ACCR using the contact information at the bottom of this page. (You
may also use the attached printable form.)
Next, let your legislators and
your statewide leaders know you want a new constitution. Write them
a letter or send them an e-mail and say, "Count me among those who
want a new constitution."
You only have to write a few sentences to get
your point across. It's not how much you write but rather the power
of the feelings you convey that will make a difference. Some legislators
continue to say they don't hear from their constituents about constitutional
reform. Therefore, they conclude there is not much interest among
voters. Let's change that perception!
Join in the public deliberation about constitutional
reform. Write your local newspaper and express your thoughts. Also,
answer negative or erroneous letters and let the public know the
truth. Reformers can win this debate if they will be active in the
arena of public opinion.
Get your civic and church organizations involved.
Let them become forums for debate and discussion about our constitution.
We need to expand the civic space in Alabama if we are going to
take back our democracy from the special interests.
If you're interested in organizing a reform group
in your area, ACCR can help. We want to encourage the development
of a grass-roots movement that doesnt depend on any one organization
