UPDATE #20: Continental Congress 2009

New CC2009 Tri-fold Brochure Released 

Need Help Setting Up Meetings

Ed. note
: This update regards the upcoming historic Continental Congress 2009 event to be held later this year.  As part of CC 2009, delegates selected by the People from each of the fifty states will convene to discuss the Government’s ongoing violations of the Constitution and strategies the People can employ to peaceably curtail the abuse.  Although these violations have been widely debated for years, it is the Government’s patent refusal to respond to any and all First Amendment Petitions for Redress that now compel the People to justly and actively resist the tyranny.

We strongly encourage our readers to review each of our
latest updates.  At a minimum, please be sure to read our “Summit Call and “Line in the Sand” web articles
which provide a good overview of the constitutional crisis and CC 2009 initiative.


Today WTP released a new printable color “tri-fold” brochure focusing on our escalating constitutional crisis and our call to support the Continental Congress 2009 initiative to achieve the restoration of Constitutional Order. 

RIGHT-Click here to download the CC2009 tri-fold brochure.

The tri-fold is designed to enable supporters and WTP coordinators to engage in public outreach regarding CC2009 generally, and to provide advance notice of specific meetings such as the 56-city meeting tour started this past weekend by Bob Schulz.

The reverse side of the brochure has space designated for specific meeting details (time, date, location, etc.)  Supporters should simply print out the brochure, enter or “tape in” the local meeting information (we suggest inserting printed text to keep a “professional” appearance), take it to your local copy center, and then “hit the streets” for distribution.  

The tri-fold is just the first in a set comprehensive communications and technology resources being deployed in the coming weeks in support of the Continental Congress. 

WTP will soon be providing WTP Congress coordinators with additional instructions regarding outreach using the tri-fold.  Supporters should stay creative about places they might distribute the tri-fold in their local community.  Let’s get America on board with CC2009!

Meeting Help Needed

We still need significant help arranging for many of the meeting venues for Bob’s 56-city CC2009 meeting tour. 

Key to our success in drawing people to the meetings is our ability to provide adequate advance public and media notice, as well as lead time for people to arrange their personal affairs so they can attend.   

Please review Bob’s full meeting schedule and consider investing a couple of hours to help locate an appropriate meeting location in your area. Although we desire help with the entire schedule, your help is most critically needed right now in arranging those meetings scheduled during the next two to three weeks.

This week Bob is in Florida before traveling to Alabama and Tennessee, then south through Arkansas and Mississippi before additional Texas meetings.

A few helpful hints:

The venue should be in or near the listed city and not too distant from a major highway. 

Because of the relatively tight schedule, significant changes to the location or schedule will be considered, but will likely not be possible. 

Venues that worked well on Tour #1 are public libraries, community rooms, restaurant meeting rooms, VFW and other banquet halls and hotel conference rooms.  

In all cases we prefer the attendees be able to sit at a table (it’s known as “classroom style”). We should plan for 35 people at weekday meetings and 100 people at weekend meetings.  NOTE: There have been exceptions where our coordinators have managed to attract hundreds of concerned Americans to their meeting, in which cases the coordinators had a good idea of the turnout and prepared accordingly. 

For weekday meetings the room should be available from 7-10 pm. Some venues may close at 9, in which case the meeting would need to begin at 6 pm. For weekend meetings the room should be available from 1-4 pm. 

In all cases we need a projection screen, a small table for the LCD projector and a 3-prong extension cord and power strip. Except in cases where more than 75 people are expected to attend or in venues with poor acoustics, Bob will not need a microphone. 

Potential venues should hold at least 75-100 people for moderately sized population centers and be near at least one moderately priced hotel property.  Venues can be located anywhere in the general suburban vicinity of the target city scheduled.  

Bob will finalize any paperwork needed to secure a meeting room.

Please e-mail our venue coordination volunteer Judith at with the following information for each potential venue, preferably in the following format: Local event coordinator: (name, email address, phone number). Venue: (name of facility, complete address including zip code, phone number, website if available, and other noteworthy details).

Please check the meeting schedule for the latest details and local WTP contacts.
