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!

Move to Amend Reports on Cooperation Jackson’s Struggle for Economic Democracy in Mississippi

October 20, 2016

Move to Amend brings you voices from the movement to amend the Constitution through our weekly podcast. New shows released every Thursday morning!

Mississippi gets some deservedly bad press. The plethora of far-right Koch-sponsored bills that swept through its legislature is the stuff of nightmares. But some good folks in Jackson are having none of it.

Cooperation Jackson is an emerging network of worker cooperatives and supporting institutions fighting to create sustainable community development and economic democracy.  Join us for an enlightening conversation with the founder and organizing coordinator of Cooperation Jackson, Brandon King.
