The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) is the largest federal employee union proudly representing 700,000 federal and D.C. government workers nationwide and overseas (24,000 in MN). Workers in virtually all functions of government at every federal agency depend upon AFGE for legal representation, legislative advocacy, technical expertise and informational services.
RESOLVED, American Federation of Government Employees 8th District, stands
with the Move To Amend campaign and communities across the country to defend democracy
from the corrupting effects of undue corporate power by amending the United States
Constitution to establish that:
I. Only human beings, not corporations and other legal entities, are persons
endowed with constitutional rights, and
2. Money is not speech, and therefore regulating political contributions and
spending is not equivalent to limiting political speech.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that American Federation of Government Employees 8th District hereby instructs our state and federal representatives to enact resolutions and
legislation to advance this effort.
