Launch of the World's First Virtual Constitutional Convention

Join us to use crowdsourcing and social media to ReThink California

California's governance crisis is at the very root of the state's economic and fiscal problems. And at the very foundation of the crisis is our own state Constitution. Thanks to numerous amendments by multiple ballot initiatives, the California Constitution is a bloated 65,000 words. In contrast, the U.S. Constitution is a svelte 8,500 words.

On October 8th, Californians from across the Bay Area launched reThinkCali.com, a groundbreaking web-based effort to solve California's governance problems by providing tools and incentives to educate, engage, and encourage everyone to submit her/his proposed solutions to fix what ails our state.
