Winona Human Rights Commission Endorses Move To Amend

August 28, 2017

The Winona Human Rights commission would like to announce our endorsement of the Move to Amend (MTA) Coalition and ask our fellow citizens to learn about MTA and add themselves or their organizations as endorsers as well. Please visit www.movetoamend.org to learn more and add your support. We also remain concerned about Winona’s ongoing relationship with Wells Fargo as a local example of financial interests overriding concern for human rights.

Democracy Convention: A Call To Transform Our Political System

August 12, 2017

Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap, National Director of Move To Amend, one of the main convention sponsors, proclaimed that the moral argument for overturning the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision is what will bring people together to demand a 28th Amendment. Move To Amend supports the We the People Amendment that states money is not speech and corporations are not people.

The Grinch Who Stole Democracy

July 19, 2017

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. Trump is like The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, with the notable exception that Trump doesn't have a heart, not even one ten sizes too small.  

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!

The Freedom of Oppress

July 16, 2017

Will you consider a gift to Move To Amend to help us get to the Democracy Convention where we will educate hundreds of people on how they can help democratize the Constitution?

There’s no way that the wealthy 1% that our government serves can continue to oppress us if we all stand in solidarity against them. Attending the Democracy Convention in Minneapolis is a crucial piece to attaining a government that works to preserve the freedom and well-being of “We the People.” The conferences and workshops that we will host will impact hundreds.

We Can Make It Happen!

June 27, 2017

This August we'll be heading to Minneapolis to take part in the Democracy Convention. This five day event is an opportunity for us to bring in like-minded individuals ready to join the movement and brainstorm real solutions for creating a government that works for its people and not only its corporations.

It's also an opportunity to provide low-income individuals with the opportunity to participate in the movement to amend our constitution through a scholarship fund to help them get to the event.

Help us raise the $25,000 we need to organize the Democratizing the Constitution Conference at the Democracy Convention. Since starting this campaign, we've raised about $1000.  We need to raise $24,000 more by July 20.

Minneapolis, Here We Come! (With Your Help)

June 22, 2017

In August, we'll be heading to Minneapolis for the 3rd national Democracy Convention and we hope you'll join us!

Move to Amend will be leading one of seven conferences at the convention, "Democratizing the Constitution." This conference will include insightful and engaging workshops that will empower people to mobilize their communities and join the movement to amend the Constitution and legalize democracy.

The work that we will accomplish at the Democracy Convention is incredibly important, but we cannot do it without your support.  

Please help us make this a wonderful event!

Universalizing Resistance, Democratizing Power

June 10, 2017

With the Trump Administration steering the ship of state into turbulent domestic waters and churning up the foreign policy sea, people from many communities have moved into the streets to defend the oppressed, resist inhumane policies, and demand a sustainable future. We the People are right to protest -- it's our country, and we can do a lot better. Protesting is good and building democracy is better.

With seven different conferences under one roof, there's something for everybody interested in democratizing our institutions and building real participatory democracy. Move to Amend is a convening organization as well as the anchor organization for the Democratizing the Constitution Conference, and we need your participation both during and before the convention.

Join the movement to legalize democracy and help build democracy in the US. Register here for Democracy Convention 2017 in Minneapolis, August 2 - 6.
