We Can Make It Happen!

June 27, 2017

This August we'll be heading to Minneapolis to take part in the Democracy Convention. This five day event is an opportunity for us to bring in like-minded individuals ready to join the movement and brainstorm real solutions for creating a government that works for its people and not only its corporations.

It's also an opportunity to provide low-income individuals with the opportunity to participate in the movement to amend our constitution through a scholarship fund to help them get to the event.

Help us raise the $25,000 we need to organize the Democratizing the Constitution Conference at the Democracy Convention. Since starting this campaign, we've raised about $1000.  We need to raise $24,000 more by July 20.

Please help us make this important event happen and donate today

Minneapolis, Here We Come! (With Your Help)

June 22, 2017

In August, we'll be heading to Minneapolis for the 3rd national Democracy Convention and we hope you'll join us!

Move to Amend will be leading one of seven conferences at the convention, "Democratizing the Constitution." This conference will include insightful and engaging workshops that will empower people to mobilize their communities and join the movement to amend the Constitution and legalize democracy.

The work that we will accomplish at the Democracy Convention is incredibly important, but we cannot do it without your support.  

Please help us make this a wonderful event!

Universalizing Resistance, Democratizing Power

June 10, 2017

With the Trump Administration steering the ship of state into turbulent domestic waters and churning up the foreign policy sea, people from many communities have moved into the streets to defend the oppressed, resist inhumane policies, and demand a sustainable future. We the People are right to protest -- it's our country, and we can do a lot better. Protesting is good and building democracy is better.

With seven different conferences under one roof, there's something for everybody interested in democratizing our institutions and building real participatory democracy. Move to Amend is a convening organization as well as the anchor organization for the Democratizing the Constitution Conference, and we need your participation both during and before the convention.

Join the movement to legalize democracy and help build democracy in the US. Register here for Democracy Convention 2017 in Minneapolis, August 2 - 6.

Move to Amend is now working in coordination wth dozens of  other like-minded organizations. Thanks for taking the time to consider this.

Local response: Minnesotans deserve a vote on corporate money in state politics

February 17, 2016

The News Tribune’s Feb. 16 editorial resisted amending our Minnesota Constitution through a ballot process, as outlined in our Minnesota Constitution (Our View: “Don’t let politics alter Constitution”).

The editorial agreed that a problem exists with openness and transparency in Minnesota government but did not agree that the people should be allowed to vote to fix the problem. While the editorial may be correct that the House majority may be counted on to vote as a caucus on this effort to make Minnesota politics more open and transparent, this has gone on for far too long.
