A grassroots hero meets her hero! Shirlee Meier is the Grassroots Coordinator for COS South Dakota. On her 70th birthday she drove to the other side of the state in her heavy duty pickup truck to organize a fantastic COS town hall . Recently she gave a powerful testimony before the South Dakota legislature in favor of the Convention of States resolution. She's a true American hero. Here she is pictured at the event she organized with COS President Mark Meckler. Shirlee is a recipient of the COS Challenge Coin, a rare and special honor for an extraordinary person dedicated to securing the blessings of liberty. #conventionofstates
"I absolutely support the Convention of States Project, designed for fulfilling the constitutional methodologies for protecting our rights. Yes, it can happen. And yes, it should happen. We should begin by completely restructuring the unconstitutional federal bureaucracy. Administrative agencies should not be making law. If you believe the people should decide instead of Washington D.C., then you should support the Convention of States Project." Thank you, Ben Shapiro! #conventionofstates

These great patriots are building and mobilizing self-governing grassroots armies in their states as they work to pass our Article V resolution Who decides? We the People decide!  #conventionofstates

Last Friday Night, Mark Meckler, the President of Citizens for Self-Governance and the Convention of States Project, hosted Sirius Radio’s Patriot Tonight.  Tons of calls poured in from the grassroots on the three hour radio show from 9pm until midnight.  Not only was the show a great success for the promotion of the organization, but COS also got invited back on the show for a future date. 
In addition to his hit on Sirius Radio, last Saturday morning, Mark Meckler also appeared on Fox and Friends for the second time this month.  He was on with host, and COS supporter, Pete Hegseth.  Mark stated, “Pete is a great guy who just publicly endorsed COS.  Hopefully, we’ll have the chance to talk more about COS on Fox & Friends soon.”

We had a productive state meeting last week in Wisconsin, discussing the legislative and grassroots strategy for the coming year.

Last Thursday, Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick met with COS Texas Leadership Team to congratulate self-governing Texans, the grassroots, for a job well done in the adoption of the Convention of States resolution - SJR2.  Tamara Colbert, the National Media Relations Director, and Angie Turner, the Texas State Director, posed with the “Guns of the Alamo” per Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick’s idea of fun.  He took them down from his personal collection in the Alamo Conference Room, stating, "I don't think you realize what you've done.” In just 4 years, we, as volunteers, have accomplished something that even paid lobbyists haven’t been able to do in twice the amount of time.  After a little more than an hour personal time with Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, the COS TX Leadership Team was able to communicate effectively and develop a relationship with the Lieutenant Governor.  After the meeting, he responded by insisting Article V's importance to return self-governance to the sovereign citizens.  The Framers knew LIBERTY rests in the hands of "We the People" by the Constitutional principles of limited government and the power to keep it through the legal, peaceful tool of an Article V, Convention of States.  Now, in Texas, Phase Two is being implemented, which involves growing the grassroots, training the citizens in activism, and continuing to educate Texans on the use of Article V.  Our legislators can’t do it alone, the grassroots are responsible for being the watch dogs for what we want in our states! Like in Texas, it is vital that citizens be actively engaged in what is happening in their communities! .
