Move to Amend Tucson

Date Established: 

November 2011

We are the Move to Amend affiliate for Tucson, Pima County, and Southern Arizona. Our main goals are to end "Corporate Personhood" and "money as free speech" through our We the People Amendment (HJR48) introduced in the 114th Congress on April 29, 2015...We hope to get big money out of politics and return the electoral process to "We the People" as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution...details about our Amendment can be found on the National website...

Our Tucson affiliate holds actions the 2nd Saturday of each month at 10:00 AM.  We display our Move to Amend banners and gather signatures on the MTA petition in support of the amendment.  At 11:30 we adjourn to a nearby restaurant for lunch, planning and socializing.

On Saturday, October 14th at 10:00 AM we'll meet outside the Murphy-Wilmot library at 530 N. Wilmot Tucson, AZ 85710.  Please, join us for fun and action! 

 

Our projects include: 

  • Reaching out to community organizations to build relationships and coalitions 

  • Community Outreach through our Speakers Bureau 

  • Lobby our local, state and Federal Representatives to support our Amendment
