Move to Amend, the national campaign to abolish corporate constitutional rights and eliminate big money from elections, will host a community forum on "Creating an Authentic, Participatory Democracy" with guest speaker Kaitlyn Sopoci-Belknap, Move to Amend National Director. The event is part of a statewide "Barnstorming Speaking Tour" across Oregon.
The program will focus on how Portland can contribute to the growing national movement to affirm that only human beings have constitutional rights and that money can be regulated in elections and is not defined constitutionally as free speech. Sopoci-Belknap will report on and discuss actions that have taken place in hundreds of communities across the nation in support of the federal We the People Amendment, H.J.R. 48 as part of a larger movement of needed fundamental democratic changes.
