It's time to stand up to overreaching governors, mayors, and bureaucrats. It's time to open up our businesses while adopting responsible, common-sense safety measures. And it's time to support those businesses by showing up to purchase their goods and services.
We're calling all Americans to Stand Up, Open Up, and Show Up this Friday, May 22.
For months, we've complied with lockdown and "stay-at-home" orders supposedly designed to "slow the spread" of the dangerous COVID-19 virus. But even as the infection rate slowed and rural communities saw virtually zero transmission, power-hungry and terrified governors and mayors maintained the lockdown orders.
The result has been economic devastation on a level never seen in our country. In his latest Battlecry episode, Convention of States Project President Mark Meckler told stories from around the nation of business owners and activists who have been harassed and persecuted for simply trying to earn a living.
We're pushing back in the only way we know how: by empowering the American grassroots.
If you will commit to Standing Up, Opening Up, or Showing Up, we want to tell your story, too. Here's what you can do:
Use your phone to record a short, 10-second video explaining why you're Standing Up, Opening Up, or Showing Up.

Upload your video to the forum.
We'll use our national media reach at Convention of States to blast this message out to the entire country. We want the world to know that the American people are ready to Open the States, and you can be a part of this historic movement.
