California Democratic Party

In July 2013, the California Democratic Party at its state party convention passed a resolution that called "upon the Congress to send to the states for ratification a constitutional amendment overturning Citizens United vs. FEC corporate constitutional rights, clarifying that corporations are not persons and constitutional rights are for natural persons only, ending the doctrine that money is speech and leveling the playing field through limits on the ability of corporations and other wealthy interests to influence the outcome of elections through political campaign contributions and expenditures."

In May 2017, the California Democratic Party passed a second resolution at its convention that re-affirmed the first resolution and further "encourages candidates to support an amendment that addresses both of these doctrines, and we hereby call on our delegates to join the hundreds of thousands of citizens, grassroots organizations and local governments across the country in the Move to Amend campaign to support an Amendment to the U.S. Constitution making clear that (1) corporations do not possess the inherent and inalienable rights of People; and (2) that the raising and spending of money in elections can be regulated."
