On Friday we officially passed our goal for House of Representative Co-Sponsors on the We the People Amendment -- for 2018!
Our goal this year was 35 co-sponsors on House Joint Resolution 48 (the We the People Amendment) but as of Friday, we are at 48!
NEXT year's goal was 45.
How about that!?
This is thanks to all the marvelous work of our stupendous supporters -- folks like you -- maybe even directly because of YOU! Big thanks to everyone who contacted your Representative during the August recess to bring up our numbers.
So that's the good news.
But unfortunately in the Senate we aren't doing as well.
Our goal this year is to get the We the People Amendment introduced in the Senate for the first time, but so far, no dice.
It is time to LEAN IN!
Here's what you can do to help us make it happen:
Contact your Senators by phone and urge them to introduce a Senate companion bill to House Joint Resolution 48. Click here to get their phone numbers.
Write a letter to the editor of your local paper and ask your Senator(s) (by name!!) to introduce a companion bill to HJR 48.
This small task is huge: Senators definitely pay attention when their name shows up in the paper - let's make sure this is on their radar, in public! If you're willing to do this task, please sign up here and we'll send you information to get started.
- Make a donation to help us keep the pressure on. I'll be visiting Washington D.C. next month to follow up on the meetings our volunteers held with their Senators in August. We won't let up until we reach our goal -- please make a donation to support the movement to amend!
We only have a couple months left to convince our Senators to prioritize introducing the We the People Amendment.
There's a lot going on right now, but you know that there are few issues more important than Move to Amend -- because almost every single other issue connects back to corporate power over our government.
Let's make sure our Senators know we need them on our team and that we're paying attention to their actions!
