Things are moving fast here in Los Angeles and we need your help!
At 2 PM next Wednesday, November 2, 2011, a resolution is coming before the Intergovernmental Relations Committee of the LA City Council. The resolution was introduced by City Council President Garcetti and Bill Rosendahl and calls for overturning the Citizen's United decision and revoking Corporate first amendment rights.
Move To Amend LA would like to see the City Council pass a stronger resolution which calls for an end to all corporate constitutional rights and also clearly establishes that money is not the same as free speech, and therefore regulating political contributions and spending is not equivalent to limiting political speech.
Please help us by attending the hearing and/or to actively advocate for others to do the same. If we could pass a version of the stronger resolution, we would be the first major city to do so. This would be widely publicized and make a real impact on our effort to overturn all corporate constitutional rights.
We will be meeting as a group at 1:30 PM outside the office to discuss strategy. The meeting will start right on time so please don't be late!
We can arrange parking if you email movetoamendla [at] gmail.com by 3 PM on Tuesday, November 1st.
Put RSVP CITY COUNCIL HEARING in the subject line and include your name, car make, model & license number. Parking will be at the City Hall East garage.
