Move to Amend Tucson

Date Established: 

November 2011

We are the Move to Amend affiliate for Tucson, Pima County, and Southern Arizona. Our main goals are to end "Corporate Personhood" and "money as free speech" through our We the People Amendment (HJR48) first introduced in the 114th Congress on April 29, 2015 and reintroduced in each new congress....We hope to get big money out of politics and return the electoral process to "We the People" as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution...details about our Amendment can be found on the National website...

Our Tucson affiliate holds actions the 2nd Saturday of each month at 10:00 AM.  We display our Move to Amend banners and gather signatures on the MTA petition in support of the amendment.  At 11:30 we  adjourn to a nearby restaurant for lunch, planning and socializing.

On Sat. Oct. 13th we'll be gathering outside the Woods Memorial Library at 3455 N. 1st Ave.  If the weather is cool enough, we'll bring our mascot, Amenda Rose with us.  Please plan to join us. 

Our projects include: 

  • Reaching out to community organizations to build relationships and coalitions 

  • Community Outreach through our Speakers Bureau 

  • Lobby our local, state and Federal Representatives to support our Amendment

  • Getting signatures on the MTA petition to show support for the amendment
