About | Donate | Take Action

Dear Larry,We are celebrating a historic moment: This week Move to Amend’s WE THE PEOPLE AMENDMENT was introduced in Congress!Our Congressional partners are Rick Nolan (MN) and Mark Pocan (WI).

Representatives Nolan and Pocan are the first Congresspeople to stand up for the only solution that will return government control to “we the people.”  We thank them for supporting Move to Amend’s effort and for their commitment to American democracy.

Please support Move to Amend by making a donation towards our work.

The We the People Amendment is neither the first amendment which addresses Citizens United, nor will it be the last to be introduced in this session of Congress.  However, it is the only amendment that deals with myriad Supreme Court decisions granting constitutional rights to corporations and defining money as  speech.

The introduction of the We the People Amendment is a momentous opportunity to shine a spotlight on corporate rule and bring others to the Move to Amend cause. Welcome to all of the thousands of new people who have signed up this week to participate in the cause!

Please support Move to Amend by making a donation towards our work.

We know that much education is still required inside and outside the halls of Congress. Although our movement is rapidly growing, it is still to reach critical mass — the mass necessary to force action in Washington DC. Local organizing around local and state resolutions and initiatives remains foremost in our strategy.

Stay tuned to hear more about how to support the We the People Amendment through grassroots action; and how we can work together to build a movement to make real the promise of American democracy.

We have reached this milestone faster than we believed we would. Thank you for making this possible. Please make a donation now to help us keep the momentum up.

Yours for democracy,

Ashley Sanders, Ben Manski, Daniel Lee, David Cobb, Egberto Willies, George Friday, Jerome Scott, Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap, Laura Bonham, Nancy Price

Overturn Citizens United: Get corporate money out of politics

By Jonathan Tong (Contact)

To be delivered to: Jay Inslee, Rob McKenna, The Washington State House, The Washington State Senate, and Governor Jay Inslee

Petition Statement
Get the Washington State Legislature to pass a resolution during the 2013 session calling on the U.S. Congress to pass a constitutional amendment that in effect reverses the 2010 Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision by clarifying that:

1. Only human beings, not corporations, are persons under the United States Constitution.
2. Money is not speech and the donation of money to a political campaign is not a form of constitutionally protected speech. Therefore regulating political contributions and spending is not equivalent to limiting political speech.

Petition Background

Get the Washington State Legislature to pass a resolution calling on the U.S. Congress to pass a constitutional amendment that reverses the 2010 Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision.

Corporations are not entitled to the same constitutional rights as people. Regulating political contributions and spending is not equivalent to limiting political speech.

There are currently 10,226 signatures

NEW goal – We need 15,000 signatures
