Prescott Area Move to Amend

Date Established: 

June 2012

This is the page for the Move to Amend affiliate for Prescott,

Yavapai County, and Northern Arizona.

 
If the material on this National Move To Amend website (click on any of the headings across the top of the page to go there) interests you and/or you would like to participate in some of the local projects listed below, please contact us. 
 
Our leadership team meets on the second Tuesday of each month to celebrate our progress, discuss strategies, and make plans.  On the fourth Wednesday we meet at a restaurant for drinks and stimulating discussion.  Click on the ANNOUNCEMENTS tab above or scroll down this page to find out details. 
 
Some of our ongoing projects are:
 
  • Gathering signatures from people who endorse our amendment at public events on the downtown plaza, on college campuses, or wherever.  It is fun and energizing to engage with the public, who overwhelmingly support our cause.
  • Reaching out to like-minded local groups for endorsements and for creative collaboration in planning public activities.
  • Hosting forums on the fourth Wednesday of every month, featuring a speaker and/or video and spirited discussion.  These are held at a downtown restaurant at Happy Hour time.
  • Speaking to local clubs and associations.
  • Meeting with our elected representatives to lobby for our cause. 
Interested in helping with these projects?  Have ideas of your own?  Please
