The Project is an endeavor of the Center for Tenth Amendment Action: the Foundation's focal point for restoring the state sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment over the past half-decade. Founded by a then-little-known Texas lawyer named Ted Cruz, and presently helmed by the eminent academic and political philosopher Dr. Thomas Lindsay, the Center has been instrumental in opening new pathways for state action against the overreach of Washington, D.C. Its track record of innovation and action in the service of liberty provides ample precedent for the Article V Project now. 

The Article V Project will be housed at the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s headquarters in Austin, Texas, just two blocks from the Texas State Capitol — but its presence and activities will be national, ranging across America's state capitals from Honolulu to Augusta, from Juneau to Tallahassee. 

Responsibilities include, but are not limited to: 
• Production of research on the mechanisms and operation of a Convention of States. 
• Assembly of a coalition of allies from across civil society for the advancement of a Convention of States. 
• Coordination of activities across multiple states necessary to secure passage of Article V Convention calls across the requisite number of states. 
• Representation of the Convention of States concept in media for the furtherance of public education on this critical issue. 
• At an Article V convention itself, coordination of efforts and management of an efficient and productive process to secure the general aims of the "Texas Plan" and any other liberty-oriented Constitutional reforms. 

• 5+ years of project management experience required 
• Demonstrated success in organizing large-scale liberty movements 
• Excellent writing, editing, and public presentation skills and legal research 
• Experience and proficiency in interacting with legislators, media, stakeholders, and the general public 
• Ability to comprehend/analyze complex legislative and constitutional issues 
• Ability to effectively advocate for the Foundation’s principles and recommendations 
• Experience with basic software applications such as those in the Microsoft Office suite 
• Experience in website content management desired, but not required
