9-11 is usually an excuse for politicians to make a lot of noise about terrorism without having to actually craft policy that reduces terrorism. It's tough to make political hay while a different kind of terror unfolds, one wrought by Mother Nature, and made worse by man-made global warming.
When is Constitution Day?
It commemorates the ratification of our current Constitution back on September 17, 1787, and all those who have become American citizens. It was known as Citizenship Day until 2004 and is observed every September 14.
Why are we so excited about Constitution Day?
Move to Amend was the first organization to take on the Citizens United ruling and all the other Supreme Court decisions creating corporate Constitutional rights, and we are the only grassroots organization with an infrastructure in place with the potential to win and ratify the We the People Amendment (HJR 48).
The Winona Human Rights commission would like to announce our endorsement of the Move to Amend (MTA) Coalition and ask our fellow citizens to learn about MTA and add themselves or their organizations as endorsers as well. Please visit www.movetoamend.org to learn more and add your support. We also remain concerned about Winona’s ongoing relationship with Wells Fargo as a local example of financial interests overriding concern for human rights.
