CKMTA history and how You can Contribute

Although CKMTA initiates activities, there are many things you can do on your own. Write to your state representatives asking them to pledge support, table at local neighborhood organizations, or take flyers to meetings you attend, print out the petition forms and gather signatures to be given to CKMTA board members.  Corruption is rampant. Let’s get money out of politics and take personhood away from Corporations.
