Who We Are

We are Alabama Citizens for Constitutional Reform (ACCR), the force behind constitutional reform in Alabama. ACCR is a non-profit, grassroots, public interest group dedicated to helping Alabamians draft a new state constitution.

ACCR Foundation, and ACCR Inc., grew out of a rally in Tuscaloosa, Ala., on April 7, 2000, as part of a grass-roots movement for civic renewal and constitutional revision.

We want a state constitution that unites, rather than divides our people. We want to create a civic atmosphere in which politics can function for the benefit of all citizens, rather than for a few powerful interests.
