Innovative Education Initiative Calling for Local Leaders

The Alabama Citizens for Constitutional Reform (ACCR) Foundation, a non-partisan education organization, is launching its largest initiative to date.  A Mock Constitution Convention will convene next year with the purpose of helping Alabamians gain a better understanding of the constitution convention process.  They are looking for community leaders throughout Alabama to serve in one of two ways.
 
First, they are looking for people to serve as delegates to the convention.  There is a simple online application to complete and the deadline is December 31st.   To be a delegate, you must have lived in your state house district for more than three years and continue to live in that same district in 2009.  Delegates will gather during two weekends in 2009 and unveil a new Alabama Constitution next summer.
 
If you do not have the time to serve as a delegate, you can still participate in this project by being on a Local Selection Committee (LSC).  People on the LSC help spread the word in their area about the Mock Convention and during the week of January 5th, are responsible for selecting the person to be their delegate.
 
You can find more information on the project’s web page: http://www.constitutionalreform.org/mockconvention.shtml
 
If you have any questions or would like to serve on your Local Selection Committee, please contact Audrey Salgado, the ACCR Foundation’s Special Projects Coordinator: Audrey@constitutionALreform.org or (205) 437-0951.
