Alabama Initiative & Referendum (I&R)


Section 25 of the 1901 Alabama Constitution provides “That the citizens have a right, in a peaceful manner, to assemble…for redress of grievances or other purposes, by petition, address, or remonstrance.” The First Amendment in the US Constitution ensures each citizen has the right to “petition … for a redress of grievances”.  I&R will break the monopoly our legislature has on each of us by not providing constitutional amendments for Common Core, Recall, Term Limits, Education Reform, Government Reform, Fair Ballot Access for independent and minor party candidates.

We are libertarians dedicated to promoting Classical Liberal principles, involvement, and professionalism in and through the Libertarian Party. We believe that human rights are inherent and the ultimate goal of government is to protect them. The bold and compassionate message of Classical Liberalism is needed now more than ever.
