Regional Groups

Regional groups and sections enable members to exchange information with each other.

In order to manage our numerous members, they have been allocated to smaller regional groups to build a unified team, support one another and exchange ideas to strengthen campaigns. These regional groups are the first point of contact for members. Each member decides whether they want to participate – EVERYONE is welcome!
Volunteers take over the organisation in the four parts of the country.

Find out more about your regional groups closest to you through the interactive map.

We are always looking for talented people to support us in our activities:

  • Packers send thousands of letters and parcels from our logistics centre.
  • Signature collectors and flyer distributors are tirelessly on the streets.
  • Writing professionals to prepare texts and answer mail enquires
  • The entire IT system is designed and created by energetic specialists.

  • Organisational superheroes make sure that the right campaign material is available at the right time.

100k - Dare more democracy

The Friends of the Constitution support direct democracy. We believe it is important to involve citizens in political decision-making processes. This leads to better results, as issues are widely discussed, and to better acceptance of decisions, as everyone is involved in the decision-making process.

Swiss politics offers, among other things, the means of a referendum; however, the organisation and financing of a referendum is very costly, so that in practice only a few amendments to laws are actually influenced by the people.

We want to change that!

We would like to see more amendments to the law put to the vote in the future. Thereby it plays no partwhether it is a "left" or "right" issue - or whether it is more important for "urban" or "rural". We do not give an opinion on whether we think the decision was "right" or "wrong". Our aim is that the issue is discussed and voted on.

How it works:

  • Register via the registration form on our website on - You have no obligation whatsoever.
  • We scan the parliamentary proceedings and propose any amendments to the law for a referendum - this may be the case if there were very tight decisions in parliament, for example, or in the case of typical divide-and-rule ("all against SVP") - in other words, if we think that there was no proper discussion in parliament.
  • We will inform you by newsletter that a referendum proposal is pending.
  • If you also think that there should be a vote here - As I said, we are not concerned here with "left" or "right", but with the fact that discussion is necessary - you can agree on our homepage.
  • If enough people have agreed to support the referendum, we will send everyone a signature sheet.
  • Please sign and return this signature sheet to us.

We believe that we can give direct democracy a boost and hope for your support.
