Move to Amend Reports on Washington State Initiative-735

June 1, 2015

Move to Amend brings you voices from the movement to amend the Constitution through our internet radio program. Every Thursday at 5pm Pacific/8pm Eastern. This is a call-in program. Call (646) 652-2345 and press 1 to participate.

This week features WAmend campaign director Gabe Meyer and secretary Cindy Black to talk about Washington State Initiative-735 calling for a constitutional amendment ending corporate personhood and money as speech.

Gabe Meyer comes to WAmend with a long history of campaign and non-profit experience. In politics, he has done field work in a congressional race, organized signature gatherers for a citywide measure, and lead messaging and fundraising for a mayoral campaign. A fundraiser by trade, Gabe has helped raise money for groups like the Asian Counseling and Referral Service (ACRS), Art with Heart, the World Affairs Council, and the Municipal League of King County, where he was also co-chair of the board. Gabe takes pride in being a positive relational leader and is excited to make sure the I-735 campaign reaches its goals.

Cindy Black currently serves as WAmend's Secretary and is a member of the Steering Committee. She got her start in activism in 2011 inspired by the Occupy Movement, and the desire to see her grandchildren grow up in a more just and sustainable world. When working as a grassroots organizer on Washington's I-522 campaign to label GMOs, she quickly saw how big money took over and bought the election with $22 million from large corporations. Cindy decided to put her energy and efforts in getting big money out of politics and ending corporate personhood for good. She worked on WAmend's Initiative 1329 last year, and is now an active member of this year's I-735 Initiative Campaign Team. In addition to volunteering her time for WAmend, she is also a small business owner, and enjoys spending time with her family, especially her two grandkids, Aden & Emma!
