Will the voice of the people be drowned out by a flood of corporate cash?
Our federal representatives will take next month to return home to the states to be available to meet with their constituents, like they do every year. That's why we've dubbed August "We the People Lobby Month."
Welcome to our monthly live stream, the Move to Amend Live Report! This is the space where we bring you a live look into what’s going down inside the movement to amend the Constitution and legalize democracy. Check out the video recording below to learn the highlights from June and what's coming up in July
Remember to join us on Facebook LIVE each month on the 4th Wednesday at 5pm Pacific/8pm Eastern on the Move to Amend Facebook Page to get the latest news, ask questions, and get involved!
Don't use Facebook? You can also tune in the day after to view the recording right here on our website, or via our YouTube channel.
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.
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.
Please help us make this important event happen and donate today
“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.
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.
While the U.S. Senate -- in service to their corporate cronies -- is working to take away healthcare from millions of Americans, the California Senate passed a single-payer bill on a 23-14 vote, The bill is now headed to the State Assembly. A new poll shows 70% support for the Medicare-for-All type single-payer system the bill creates.
This year several states, districts,and municipalities held elections, and we need to be sure they don’t slip through the cracks! You can help hold elected officials accountable!
Call, email, and snail mail all candidates and elected officials to ask them to take the pledge:
“I support amending the U.S. Constitution to make clear that corporations and other artificial entities do not have Constitutional rights and that money is not speech and campaign spending should be limited through regulation.”
