Incarcerated Women Are Fighting on the Front Lines of California's Wildfires for $1 an Hour

October 11, 2017

Other inmates are not at all pleased by the wages, particularly considering the incredible hazards of the job. La’Sonya Edwards, an inmate who fights fires in southern California, told the New York Times in August that she makes around $500 per year in camp, plus an extra few hundred for working on the fire line. The salary of a full time civilian fighter starts at around $40,000.

Press Coverage

Challenge the law to save the environment

May 1, 2014

Published in the Sacramento News & Review, Editorial blog

Environmental law needs a democratic makeover. Nationwide and locally, Move to Amend is mobilizing support for constitutional amendments to curb unregulated campaign spending and eliminate corporate personhood. While striking at the root of systemic corruption, these amendments let communities curb polluters in ways they now cannot.

Rallies planned to oppose Citizens United decision, support new constitutional amendment

January 19, 2012

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – Several Lake County residents will attend two events in Sacramento to mark the second anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's Citizens United decision.

The court ruled that corporations are people and that money equals speech, so campaign finance cannot be regulated.

On Friday, www.MoveToAmend.org is sponsoring Occupy The Courts Day at more than 130 locations around the country, including the Supreme Court in Washington, DC, to protest the decision and advocate a constitutional amendment that repeals it.
