Make 2016 the Year Cleveland Moves to Amend!

January 13, 2016

Move to Amend is a nationwide movement to save democracy by clearly establishing money is not speech and corporations are not people.

Locally in Cleveland we have been working to put Move to Amend on the Cleveland ballot next year in 2016! We are making progress with 2500+ signatures and will continue to get more with your help!

January 21st is the 6th Anniversary of Citizens United. Can you get 6 signatures?

January 21st is the 6th anniversary of the Citizens United vs FEC Supreme Court decision.
In Citizens United, the Supreme Court held that the First Amendment prohibited the government from restricting independent political expenditures by a nonprofit corporations. 
The decision has opened the door for unlimited political spending in elections, with large corporate campaign donations dominating government instead of regular people. What can you do?  

Help take back democracy by getting a few Move to Amend signatures.
If everyone with a petition got 6 signatures on 1/21 we'd have over 600 additional signatures!

Kurentovanje (koo-rahn-toh-VAHN-yay) is the most popular carnival event in Slovenia and the central figure of the carnival, the Kurent, is believed to chase away winter and usher in spring. The day is filled with costumes, a parade, ethnic food and drink, heritage and fuzzy Kurents.

We will have Cleveland Move to Amend volunteers collecting signatures at the Kurentovanje parade.
Come sign our petition or let us know if you'd be interested in helping out!


Save the date for March 15th!

We will be collecting signatures during Ohio's primary election! We got 1000+ signatures on the last election day! 
Join us for a few hours on 3/15 so we can get another 1000 signatures!
