|Welcome to the Constitution Convention Coalition Home Page
"Joining Hands to Break the Chains of the Past!"
The purpose of the Constitution Convention Coalition is to connect non-profits throughout Alabama in the common interest of drafting a new constitution through a representative, citizen-led constitutional convention.
Why a new CONSTITUTION?
The 1901 Alabama Constitution is a hindrance to the work of non-profits because it taxes families further into poverty, deters appropriate funding of social services and discourages citizen participation at all levels of government.
Why a constitution CONVENTION?
A convention is needed to empower Alabama citizens to shape their own future through writing a new, more just Alabama constitution. There are two options to reform the constitution; by amendment or by a convention. To date, we have amended the Alabama Constitution 799 times, so let’s give a citizen-delegated convention a chance.
