Gearing Up Now to Frame the Next National Election

November 6, 2013

We are very excited to tell you about our exciting new New Hampshire Campaign!

2016 Presidential candidates are already visiting the state, soliciting support for their campaigns due to New Hampshire having such an early primary. We have the opportunity to make ending corporate personhood and getting big money out of politics central to the next national election.

We will do that in three ways:

1) Pass Move to Amend resolutions in 30-50 New Hampshire towns through town meetings this spring. This will put our issue out in front of the public and the media.

2) Target Presidential candidates directly. Everywhere they go, we will be there, asking whether they support our amendment to the Constitution. This is called Bird-dogging and it gets our issue into the campaign discussion and public spotlight. Not many will soon forget Mitt Romney's "...but corporations are people, my friend" gaff which happened because Move to Amend activists targeted him at an Iowa state fair.

3) Start local Move to Amend groups. We have 150+ groups across the country but none yet in New Hampshire. Time to turn that around!

To learn more, tune in to our internet radio show, Move to Amend Reports tomorrow night (Thursday, November 7 at 5pm Pacific / 8pm Eastern). Our guest will be Olivia Zink, Move to Amend's organizer on the ground in New Hampshire. She'll talk about plans for Move to Amend's New Hampshire Campaign. This is a call-in show.

The time is now and there is not state better positioned to make a difference in the campaign to amend the Constitution to get big corporations out of our politics and big money out of our elections. Move to Amend will be on the ground to take advantage of this opportunity.

If you support this forward-thinking campaign, please make a donation to support our work in New Hampshire.
