Project 28: The Search for Our Next Constitutional Amendment

Organizer: American Promise

It has been 28 years since the U.S,. Constitution was last updated. Over this time, trust in democratic institutions has deteriorated, culminating in an outbreak of political violence in January 2021 triggered by rumors and misinformation surrounding the 2020 general election.

BridgeTexas and American Promise are hosting a Constitutional Convention like the one in 1787 to address the wide range of problems facing American democracy — such as money in politics, hyperpolarization, election access and integrity, and the growing power of the presidency. In this interactive experience, undergraduates from across Texas will form ideologically-diverse teams to tackle a particular, systemic political issue. They will propose the text of a new amendment and then present and defend that amendment to the delegates.
