With 4weeks before voters head to the polls, Move to Amend partners and affiliates in California are mobilizing to get out the vote for the largest population of any US state for Proposition 59, the Overturn Citizens United Act. Tune in this week to hear to learn how you can get involved in this exciting campaign from Move to Amend affiliate organizer Anne Wilson of Santa Clara County and Yes On Prop. 59 Committee Chair Michele Sutter of the Money Out Voters In Coalition!
