A group of Boise activists has joined a national grassroots movement called Move to Amend, which aims to curb corporate power and restore democracy.
High Desert Move to Amend will be introducing Boise to the campaign on May 5th at the Idaho Statehouse.
Special attention will be paid to health care, public lands, immigration, gender rights, affordable housing, transportation and the participatory powers of citizens in their own local governments: topics with particular relevance, coming off the heels of Idaho's 2018 legislative session and just preceding the primary elections.

Question & Answer
"Idaho is experiencing a remarkable invigoration in citizen led efforts to improve the condition of our state and local communities. As Idahoans and Treasure Valley residents step up to actively engage and organize around whatever issue matters to them most, more and more are becoming increasingly aware of the cynical influence that money has in obstructing democratic efforts at reform.
Confronting the corrupting influence of money in politics is perhaps the most important issue of our time. It's an issue that touches all other issues." Brian Ertz, local public interest attorney in the Treasure Valley
