No movement will succeed merely by having what they consider are the best solutions to the worst problems. Its adherents must be motivated, skilled and experienced.
The upcoming Move to Amend National Leadership Summit is a place for existing and new MTA supporters to become motivated, learn necessary organizing skills, and gain valuable experience in building real power to affect real change.
More information about the Leadership Summit, including how to register, can be found at https://movetoamend.org/summit
After Donald Trump ascended to the presidency, despite losing the popular vote by an astounding margin, there just wasn't a lot of cheering to be heard in Whoville.

Our mission is to establish authentic, participatory democracy for all people, not corporations. Our first goal is to help build a diverse democracy movement capable of passing the We the People Amendment. The amendment abolishes corporate constitutional rights (corporate personhood) and money as free political speech.
If you're new to Move to Amend, or joining the growing resistance; if you want to do more, but don't know where to start, or if your #1 issue just hit a brick wall built by the corporatized state, we invite you to volunteer with Move to Amend, the Campaign to Legalize Democracy!
Move to Amend brings you voices from the movement to amend the Constitution through our weekly podcast. New shows released every Thursday morning!
Black Lives Matter activist and grassroots organizer Elsa Lakew is joining us for an update on the Black Lives Matter movement and to deepen our conversation on the intersections between movements for democracy, racial justice, and amending the Constitution to abolish corporate rule!
Unchecked corporate power is a serious threat to the country's, and the planet's, future. I applaud the effort of two citizens, Laird and Robin Monohan, to draw attention to the ghastly absurdity known as "corporate personhood," which a Supreme Court ruling last January advanced.
