It’s been six years since Move to Amend launched in response to the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling, and we have seen tremendous growth! From our beginnings as 12 people in a living room, we’ve grown to a national coalition of over 400,000 people and hundreds of organizations. Over 600 towns, cities, and counties across the United States have passed local resolutions supporting this movement, and 16 state legislatures have called for a constitutional amendment to end the court-created doctrines of corporate constitutional rights and money as free speech.
In the 2016 election cycle, the people of Washington State and Toledo, Ohio, have the latest opportunity to join this movement to amend the Constitution. This week we highlight the upcoming ballot initiatives of I-735 in Washington (November 4th) and Issue 1 in Toledo (March 15th) calling for a 28th Amendment in a conversation with Move to Amend Spokane’s Stacy Cossey, WAmend organizers Diane Jones & Cindy Black, and Toledo Move to Amend’s Douglas Jambard-Sweet.
