Our Route to Statehood

New California State was formed in 2017 and on January 15, 2018 declared Independence from the state of California following Article IV, Section 3 of the United States Constitution. In the New California State declaration there are 95 Grievances which list the reasons why New Californians are seeking independence from the state of California.

Over the course of 96 weeks since the reading of the January 15, 2018 declaration of Independence New Californians read 95 grievances.

On November 19, 2019 New Californians gathered together around the state to read the final 95th Grievance.

Read The U.S. Declaration of Independence

Process of Splitting California
Our organization has laid out 115+ Grievances as proof of a government that no longer represents or protects this current State. With the inaction of the governor or representatives our organization has been forced to declare independence from the state of California.
Read The New California Declaration of Independence

Once New California is recognized as the governing body, the state of New California will proceed with the separation process. The process begins when a state’s legislature first votes to split the state. Once the measure in the form of a resolution passes both the California Assembly and Senate, it is submitted to Congress.

No State has been brought into the Union that could not demonstrate its ability to self-govern. New California will demonstrate a governance system as modeled by the U.S. Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Establishment of Local Governance
County Committees have been established in all NCS counties. These County Committees will serve as local governance centers and will be directly involved with the New California State movement activities. Representatives from each county will be selected to represent their respective counties on the Council of Counties Committee. The County Committees will be instrumental in establishing local autonomy and outreach in their respective counties. County Committees will serve as the basis for a Legislature.

Established by the Council of Counties Committee the New California Legislature will be tasked with representation of their respective counties to the Legislature and will be actively engaged in all matters leading to statehood at the State of California and Federal levels. The Legislature will be established as a part-time legislature.

New California will follow a judiciary established by the New California State Constitution and will be in full compliance with United States of America Jurisprudence.

New California will elect a Governor according to the provisions in the New California Constitution

Declaration of Independence
In order to have a viable New California Constitution the Declaration of Independence for New California must work in tandem with it. A day of Independence must be declared to proclaim the intent to separate from the State of California in accordance with the provisions of Article 4 Section 3 of the United States Constitution. Declaring the Day of Independence was the first step in the process necessary to establish the New California Constitutional Convention. The Declaration process serves to reflect the Will of the People of New California.

During the process of the Declaration, a Constitutional Convention was convened with the representatives of Counties of New California. The New California Constitution will be consistent with the United States Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. Ratification of the New California Constitution will serve as the Will of the People in New California.
