61 co-sponsors on the We the People Amendment didn’t magically appear!
Each election year Move to Amend supporters have used our Pledge to Amend campaign to uncover who are champions, who can be persuaded, and who should be challenged.
To amend the Constitution we need a movement that is broad and deep -- and we need to reach all kinds of people...
Move to Amend is as grassroots as they come, which is why we are always looking for ways to engage folks -- in real life. We aren't the kind of group that just asks you to sign online petitions or donate money and then acts like that will bring about systemic change -- no way!
One of the ways we engage and organize is through our caucuses. We currently have four sector caucuses and we'd like to invite you to check them out.
How much money did you donate to the 2016 election?
Probably less than $1.4 billion, right? Well, no wonder you get minimum representation in Washington!
SuperPACs and secret money groups, hidden behind official-sounding donation committees, invested that amount, and now all their dreams are coming true. As Move to Amend continues to work to pass the We the People Amendment, which includes two parts: corporations are NOT people and money is NOT speech, a new coalition is working together to pass the new DISCLOSE Act.
Truth be told, we would be happy to shut up shop. That's our goal after all.
There will be no need for Move to Amend after we pass the We the People Amendment and begin building the democracy we were promised and deserve. In the meantime though, we are really happy to still be here fighting for justice and against corporate rule.
For the entire month of May, Move to Amend executed an aggressive fundraising campaign to raise enough funds to keep our metaphorical doors open. The amazing and gratifying news is that, thanks to the generosity of many of you, we achieved our goal of $150,000 and filled our fundraising gap!
A significant amount of these funds came from individual donations, but our biggest success was to sign up dozens and dozens of new monthly sustainers.
SQUEEZING the top 1% ought to be the most natural thing in the world for politicians seeking to please the masses. Yet, with few exceptions, today’s populist insurgents are more concerned with immigration and sovereignty than with the top rate of income tax. This disconnect may be more than an oddity.
Are you tired of corporations having a louder voice than you have? Are you frustrated that every time you watch the news, another company has poisoned another river? Do you feel like your representatives spend all their time chasing big corporate donors and little time working for your best interests? You can do something about it!
In a week of even more Trump awfulness, we see a tiny ray of light…
Move to Amend’s National Lobby Days have proven to be vital to our ongoing success, and this year's Lobby Day was no exception.
Thanks to the amazing affiliate volunteers who met with their representatives in June in Washington DC we have secured 4 new co-sponsors for the We the People Amendment (so far)!
