Alabama Constitutional Reform

To be delivered to The Alabama State House, The Alabama State Senate, and Governor Robert Bentley

Petition Statement

Let the people vote for a new Alabama.
There are currently 1,929 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Alabama's outdated and hurtful constitution, written in 1901 to disenfranchise African Americans and poor white people, is one of the major roadblocks to equal justice and true reform in Alabama. It is the longest constitution in the world with over 800 amendments and still holds racist language and gives tremendous power to a small handful of people in Montgomery.

Alabama voters deserve the right to vote for real reform through a constitutional convention. Until that happens, the most serious issues in our constitution remain off limits to reform.
