Bring Move to Amend to Your Community

Move to Amend national leaders are experienced and acclaimed speakers and facilitators
 
Our barnstorming speakers usually give a rousing one-hour talk telling the story of the American creation myth and the Constitution as it pertains to corporate personhood and illegitimate but legal corporate constitutional rights, followed by about an hour of facilitated discussion / Q and A.  These presentations can also be paired with film screenings, panels, potlucks, organizing training, or something else you have in mind. 
 
The goal of our speaking tours is to educate, inspire action, and identify people willing to be local organizers for Move to Amend Affiliates and Partners.
 
Volunteer event organizers are responsible for
  • Securing the venue (The venue can be any place that can accommodate an audience. Podium or microphone are not necessary, but a flip chart or whiteboard and pens are essential.)
  • Arranging for the setup and clean up at the event
  • Securing co-sponsorship from other community organizations
  • Local promotion and press
  • Hosting our speaker or securing host housing (preferably a private room with wi-fi access)

There is no honorarium charge for an evening talk and discussion. Speakers will spend some time, however, encouraging participants to become financial sustainers and donors to pay for travel, other tour-related expenses and support of our ongoing movement building work. Organizers are asked to assist in this effort -- specifically to publicly commit to becoming a monthly sustainer, recruit someone to become one or to make a one-time donation by credit card, check or cash. Donations from sponsoring organizations are also encouraged and gratefully accepted.

It is appreciated when expenses for the venue are donated by the sponsoring organization or individuals, but if you need a different arrangement, please let the national organizer know as soon as possible.

We have materials to help you pull off a successful event:
