JUNE WEBINAR: The Pledge to Amend Campaign

June 14, 2016

Every Democracy has its Bird Dogs

“Will you Pledge to Amend?”

In this presidential election year, that’s the question we’re asking candidates up and down the ballot.

Will you be a “bird dog” [search out and pursue with dogged determination] for the Pledge to Amend Campaign? We need you to ask that question--again and again and again--.and let us know how the candidates respond? 

Join our upcoming webinar on June 14 to learn how – RSVP here: http://movetoamend.nationbuilder.com/webinar_060716

Whether it passes directly through Congress or through an Article V Convention of the States, we need state and federal legislators in place who support the We the People Amendment.  Our plan remains the same: Pass our amendment by 2026 (at the latest). Those people elected to lower office this year will likely advance to state and federal office over the next few cycles. This question is valid and necessary now.

When there’s a candidate debate, when your congress members are in district for campaign events, and when candidates come knocking for your vote, get them on record. It’s easy, it’s fun, and it can make national headlines as happened to Mitt Romney when he declared, “Corporations are people, my friend!”

Sign up for the Pledge to Amend webinar on June 14 and become a bird dog for democracy!

“Will you Pledge to Amend?”

That’s the question we’ve been asking elected officials since Move to Amend launched this effort in 2013. Our goal is to secure 165 new pledges from candidates running for office this year. 

Move to Amend local affiliate groups have been participating in Pledge to Amend by lobbying their elected officials, and it pays off. Seventeen co-sponsors on the We the People Amendment don’t magically appear.

Based on their work, we’re building a database so we know who does (and doesn’t) support the We the People Amendment. Based on the work of Move to Amend’s bird dogs, we’ll know who and where our friends are, who can be persuaded, and who should be challenged.

“Will you become a bird dog for democracy?”

Pledge to Amend is a critical campaign to put local, state, and federal candidates on record about their position on the We the People Amendment. We need to get at least 165 pledges before the election to meet our goals this year – join our webinar June 14 to learn how you can help with this important campaign: http://movetoamend.nationbuilder.com/webinar_060716!
