About Us

Orrin Hatch introduced the “Equal Opportunity to Govern Amendment” into the Senate Judiciary Committee in July 2003. Since then, not much has happened.

We aim to change that.
Thousands of amendments are floated in Congress every year but virtually all of them sink out of sight. The last one ratified was the 27th Amendment in 1992. (It’s about Congressional pay.)

We need 2/3 of the House and 2/3 of the Senate to vote for our amendment. Then we need 3/4 of the states to ratify the amendment.

That’s 38 states. That’s a lot.
We’re going to need help in every state…..and that’s where you come in.
