The states have applied in sufficient number to cause a convention. 
Article V of the Constitution requires Congress to Call a Convention. 
But Congress has refused to obey the Constitution. 
We urge everyone to help. 
It's a slippery slope when we allow an increasing number of portions of the Constitution to be ignored or violated.
Especially when the nation's pressing problems are increasing in number and severity.
If we allow Article V to be ignored, then what's next?
Together we can get the Article V Convention our country needs, and the following will help to preserve and protect our constitutional rights.

  1. DISCUSSION and EDUCATION:   Supporters of Article V of the Constitution (or any part of the Constitution, for that matter) can help spread the word about Congress ignoring Article V by discussing with friends, family, neighbors, and associates about Article V and how Congress is ignoring Article V.  Americans are going to get their education one way or another (the smart way or the hard way).  It's our choice.
  2. CONTACT CONGRESS:   Supporters can write and/or call their Congress persons and ask them about Article V and ask them to obey Article V of the Constitution of the United States.  Ask members of Congress why they do not obey the Constitution Then copy the politician's response (if any) here Why won't they answer these simple questions.  Perhaps it is because they suspect there will be some amendments such as term-limits, campaign finance reform, balanced budget, prohibiting their automatic annual raises (10 times between 1997 and 2009), etc.?
  3. DON'T RE-ELECT CONGRESS PERSONS:   Supporters can refuse to vote for Congress persons who refuse to support and refuse to call an Article V Convention (which is most, if not all, 535 Congress persons at this time, who already enjoy 85%-to-90% re-election rates).  At any rate, we have the government that we elect, and re-elect, and re-elect, . . . , and re-elect, at least until repeatedly rewarding failure and repeatedly rewarding FOR-SALE, incompetent, and corrupt incumbent politicians with perpetual re-election finally becomes too painful.
  4. CONTACT STATE LEGISLATORS:   Supporters can write and/or call their State legislators and ask them to pressure the federal Congress to obey the U.S. Constitution!  In fact, if only one state legislator would file a new law suit, it would compel the Supreme Court to deal with the violation of Article V, since the Supreme Court essentially claims any citizen (i.e. non state legislator) has "no standing" (i.e. meaning, citizens of the United States can not challenge the violation of Article V, unless they are a member of a state legislature), as evidenced by the dismissal of "Walker vs Members of Congress".
  5. DON'T RE-ELECT STATE LEGISLATORS:   Supporters can refuse to vote for State Legislators who refuse to support and refuse to pressure the federal Congress to call an Article V Convention, as required by Article V of the Constitution of the United States.
  6. DONATE TIME, SKILLS, and TALENTS:   Supporters can donate their time to write articles in the FOAVC DISCUSSION FORUM and other web-sites and organizations that support Article V.  Supporters with technical skills and abilities can assist with the operation of the FOAVC web-site.
  7. PETITIONS:   Supporters can add their name to our petition and other petitions at other web-sites and organizations that support Article V.
  8. DONATIONS:   Supporters can help FOAVC via donations (FOAVC is a completely 100% volunteer organization, 100% of funds go to ways to further the message and support the FOAVC web-site).
  9. DISPLAY YOUR SUPPORT:   Supporters can display their support by getting an Article V window/bumper sticker (100% of funds go to ways to further the message and support the web-site).

  10. RECOMMENDATIONS:   Supporters can help by letting us know what can be added to this list (above).

FOAVC is a completely 100% volunteer organization, with co-founders in different states across the United States (who receive no compensation for their time and work) and members from 49 of all 50 states.  ALL funds are used to further the message to inform more fellow citizens about Article V of the U.S. Constitution. 
FOAVC is working hard at growing support and to inform more fellow citizens about Article V of the U.S. Constitution.
None of these things would be possible without the generous support from the co-founders and people that care, such as you.  Thank you!

Without wanting to resemble a news-reporter telling you about a plane-crash with a gleam in their eye, FOAVC is the ONLY place where you can find the high-resolution photo-copies of over 400 Article V Applications, which FOAVC spent thousands of dollars and many months to acquire, by hiring experienced archivists to go to the National Archives And Records Administration in Washington, D.C. (where Congress has been trying to hide them away in huge, dusty, cumbersome volumes of paper; interesting in this age of computerization), and try to find as many Article V applications as possible.  We might have missed some, but the main point is that 49 of all 50 states have already filed over 400 Article V applications (far in excess of the 34 (e.g. 2/3) required).

Article V is only 143 words in one sentence, essentially stating that when 2/3 of the states ask for an Article V Convention, Congress shall call the convention:

Article V of the U.S. Constitution:  The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress; provided that no amendment which may be made prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any manner affect the first and fourth clauses in the ninth section of the first article; and that no state, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate.

Congress refuses to call the convention, despite over 400 Article V applications from 49 of all 50 states.
Also, BEWARE of opponents who will tell you that some states have filed rescissions, or that the applications must be about the same-issue, or applications must be submitted at the same time.
First of all, there is nothing in the 143 words in the single sentence in Article V about rescissions, any same-issue requirements, or any expiration time-limits on Article V applications.  Also, there are no law suits or Supreme Court rulings that trump Article V of the Constitution.

However, even if rescissions are recognized and excluded, there are STILL 38 (or more) different states that have submitted Article V applications (more than the 34 required).
