Move to Amend is barnstorming through Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, and we're coming to a town near you! Catch a talk in your area, and learn how you can get involved in the campaign to end corporate personhood and demand real democracy!
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!

61 Communities in NH have warrant articles to overturn the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United and Amend Constitution
With the passage of resolution 2013-2014-50, Newmarket joins nearly 500 local governments nationwide in calling for a constitutional amendment to end the corrosive influence of corporate money in politics and to restore constitutional rights to the people. The resolution calls on the U.S. Congress and the states to pass an amendment that would guarantee the people’s right to regulate political spending, and clarify that the inalienable rights of the Constitution are possessed by people only, effectively overturning the basis of U.S. Supreme Court’s 2010 ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission.
What if you could have a profound impact on our democracy? It could be that easy as pass resolutions at town meeting in support of amending the constitution.
We are very excited to tell you about our exciting new New Hampshire Campaign!
