Minneapolis Area Move to Amend

Date Established: 

November 2011

The Minneapolis Area Move to Amend is a grassroots movement that formed to support Move to Amend to halt corporate overreach and restore democracy. We come from all walks of life and all parts of the political spectrum. We are young, we are getting on, and we come from all branches of the working class continuum, but we arrived in the same place. We are people. We are not corporations. We want to be heard.

The audience of 75 people applauded as David Cobb began, “I’m a patriotic, and these days, pissed off American citizen.”

Cobb, a former Green Party presidential candidate, called for the crowd gathered at Good Samaritan United Methodist Church in Edina to take action in supporting the addition of a 28th amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would state a corporation isn’t a person and money donated to candidates isn’t protected free speech.
