This is ultimately what it comes down to. If this new legislation was in direction opposition to what AST as a whole believed in, advocated for, or was based upon, I might be behind moving convention.

I can't even think of a reasonable example right now, but let's pretend Georgia wanted to end women's right to vote. I could certainly get behind not holding major events in the state. But an issue like abortion, which clearly presents arguments on both sides of the aisle, for which our sisters could push for legislation one way or the other, doesn't present a situation where this would make sense.
I believe in the values of friendship and fidelity to purpose
