We the People, Not We the Corporations

On January 21, 2010, with its ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations are persons, entitled by the U.S. Constitution to buy elections and run our government. Human beings are people; corporations are legal fictions.

We, the People of the United States of America, reject the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Citizens United and other related cases, and move to amend our Constitution to firmly establish that money is not speech, and that human beings, not corporations, are persons entitled to constitutional rights.

The Supreme Court is misguided in principle, and wrong on the law. In a democracy, the people rule.

We Move to Amend.

". . . corporations have no consciences, no beliefs, no feelings, no thoughts, no desires. Corporations help structure and facilitate the activities of human beings, to be sure, and their 'personhood' often serves as a useful legal fiction. But they are not themselves members of “We the People” by whom and for whom our Constitution was established."

             ~Supreme Court Justice Stevens, January 2010

We Can Make It Happen!

June 27, 2017

This August we'll be heading to Minneapolis to take part in the Democracy Convention. This five day event is an opportunity for us to bring in like-minded individuals ready to join the movement and brainstorm real solutions for creating a government that works for its people and not only its corporations.

It's also an opportunity to provide low-income individuals with the opportunity to participate in the movement to amend our constitution through a scholarship fund to help them get to the event.

Help us raise the $25,000 we need to organize the Democratizing the Constitution Conference at the Democracy Convention. Since starting this campaign, we've raised about $1000.  We need to raise $24,000 more by July 20.

Democracy Convention

June 27, 2017

“Universalizing Resistance, Democratizing Power!” is an increasing quest of a growing number of individuals, organizations and movements, as well as the theme of the third Democracy Convention, August 2-6 in Minneapolis.

Attendees with personal concerns and collective experiences of threats and opportunities to create authentic democracy both before and especially since the November elections will find multiple spaces for learning, sharing and strategizing. The Convention’s objective is to not simply explore resisting ever increasing assaults domestically and in solidarity with those elsewhere, but to expand learning and strategizing about what it takes to build genuinely inclusive and powerful structures capable of achieving change while affirming the rights and dignity of all and protecting the planet.

Minneapolis, Here We Come! (With Your Help)

June 22, 2017

In August, we'll be heading to Minneapolis for the 3rd national Democracy Convention and we hope you'll join us!

Move to Amend will be leading one of seven conferences at the convention, "Democratizing the Constitution." This conference will include insightful and engaging workshops that will empower people to mobilize their communities and join the movement to amend the Constitution and legalize democracy.

The work that we will accomplish at the Democracy Convention is incredibly important, but we cannot do it without your support.  

Please help us make this a wonderful event!
