Talking the Talk
There are two groups of people that you are going to talk to and while many of the same principles apply, there are some differences.
Summary Report on the 4th Annual Statewide Gathering of the Move to Amend Ohio Network
First Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbus
April 2, 2016 / 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Theme for the day: “As Ohio Goes, So Goes the Nation”
To truly address America's corruption problem, we need a constitutional amendment saying that corporations are not people and that money is not speech.
The Interfaith Caucus of Move to Amend, a national coalition seeking to obtain this amendment (See HJR 48 in the U.S. House of Representatives), is reaching out to all faith and ethical communities who believe, as the pope said, that we are “stewards of creation."
Is amending the U.S. Constitution a local issue, and, if so, how?
Ever since an initiative by Cleveland Heights citizens placed Issue 32 on the November 2013 ballot, some residents have asked that question. Two city council members expressed opposing views on it at a Jan. 21 public hearing, where residents testified about abuses of corporate power and the corrupting effect of money in politics.
