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!

Verona aldermen approve Constitutional amendment resolution

February 21, 2013

Verona aldermen approved a resolution to Move to Amend 417, a Constitutional amendment in which the United States Supreme Court equated corporations with individual personhood and corporate money to freedom of speech in regards to political campaigns. The move came during the council's Jan. 29 meeting.

The Amend 417 movement calls to abolish corporate personhood and re-establish that only people are entitled to inalienable constitutional rights, money is not free speech and regulating political contributions is not equivalent to limiting free speech.
