The Best Defense is a Good Offense

March 1, 2017

As the saying goes, the best defense is a good offense. We've been on the offense for real particpatory democracy for all people--not corporations--since day one. In this high-stakes game, our offense has been and remains building a movement to pass the We the People Amendment, and then taking up the challenge of perfecting our democracy so it truly represents the vast and myriad communities knitting our nation together.

Join leaders from Move to Amend for a conference call to explore the parallels and differences between the fascist program of the Trump administration and the 1930s and 1940s when fascist rose to power in Europe, as well as American fascism that has been strongest in the U.S. South, since the Civil War.

It May Only Take 3.5% of the Population to Topple a Dictator – with Civil Resistance

February 1, 2017

Nonviolent resistance has empowered the labor movement, closed down or cancelled dozens of nuclear plants, protected farm workers from abuse in California, motivated the recognition of Aids patients as worthy of access to life-saving treatment, protected free speech, put climate reform on the agenda, given reprieve to Dreamers, raised awareness about economic inequality, changed the conversation about systemic racism and black lives and stalled construction of an oil pipeline on indigenous lands in Standing Rock.

In fact, it is hard to identify a progressive cause in the United States that has advanced without a civil resistance movement behind it.
