August 28, 2018

Join the League of Women Voters of Johnson County to learn about the dangers a Constitutional Convention poses and why the League of Women Voters thinks opening one could harm America’s basic principles of government and citizens’ individual rights.

The presentation, “A Constitutional Convention: A Serious Threat to Our Democracy,” will be held from 9 -10:30 a.m. on Sept. 8 at Atonement Lutheran Church, 9948 Metcalf, Overland Park.

Presenters are Mark Johnson, an adjunct professor from the University of Kansas School of Law and Cille King, co-president of the League of Women Voters of Kansas.

They will describe the potential risks and ways to advocate for the rejection of a proposed Constitutional Convention.

The presentation is free and open to the public.

To this Staff writer, and LWVJoCo, I'm not aware or any organization who's proposing to rewrite the Constitution with a "Constitutional Convention", but I am aware of three groups looking to use Article V, section II in the US Constitution calling for an Amendments Convention to debate and propose limited amendments through State Legislatures. Can you expand on the details from your article about who they are? Thank you
