Join us for a Move to Amend Silent Vigil on Tuesday, January 21st at the Martin Luther King Jr. Plaza from 12:00 – 1:00 PM.
End constitutional rights of American corporations
Jan. 21 was the ninth anniversary of Citizens United vs. FEC, the infamous Supreme Court decision that opened the floodgates of election money from the super-rich and corporate entities. Result: further drowning out voices of us without money.
Corporate hijacking of elections and government predates Citizens United by decades, in the case of corporate constitutional rights by more than a century!
A nationwide effort is underway to overturn corporate ‘personhood’
It’s not easy to pass a constitutional amendment. The last time it happened was in 1992, when the 27th set requirements for changes in compensation to members of Congress.
It had first been introduced more than 200 years earlier, in 1789.
