The Path to the We the People Amendment

June 23, 2016

Our goal has always been clear. How we get there has been the question.

We now have a detailed roadmap to reach our destination. The only thing that stands between us and the passage of the “We the People Amendment” is our effective execution of  “The Path to the 28th Amendment: Strategic Plan to Pass the "We the People Amendment" to the United States Constitution.”

A plan is just a wish, without execution. Help this plan come to fruition by becoming a sustaining donor.

After developing our strategic plan for two years, the national team submitted the final draft to our Move to Amend affiliates in January of this year for their input. In May, at the Move to Amend National Leadership Summit in Washington DC, the body unanimously adopted the plan. In the weeks since the summit, Move to Amend staff has been busily checking the plan and preparing it for release to our supporters, while our affiliates have begun to execute the plan in their own communities.

Heck, affiliates members got to work on the plan immediately after its adoption, when three different groups garnered three more co-sponsors at the Move to Amend National Lobby Day—bringing us closer to our 2016 goal of 25 co-sponsors. (We have a grand total of 20 co-sponsors.)  Unfortunately, raising the funds we desperately need to succeed is not keeping pace with the rest of the plan.

A plan is just a wish, without execution. Help this plan come to fruition by becoming a sustaining donor.

To get where we need to go by 2026, this plan will become more and more valuable as Move to Amend grows to meet the demand. The number of affiliates will grow; individual interest will grow; alliances and our coalition will grow. All will need tools, materials and organizing know-how, not to mention specific guidance from our staff to meet the challenges present in any struggle.

Our strategic plan includes all the components we need to succeed. From growing affiliates, building relationships with other groups and organizations, passing resolutions and ballot initiatives, securing co-sponsors, and raising the necessary funds to bring the plan to full implementation by passing the We the People Amendment in 2026.

USAmericans are facing some very challenging times.  We know that our amendment and the struggle before us to pass it will deliver a transformed democracy. We also know our strategic plan will deliver the desired outcomes providing we collectively execute it.

Check out our new webpage, and join us in executing our strategic plan.  Your monthly contribution of $10, $28, $50 or more is necessary to make sure we meet our milestones on the path to the 28th Amendment.
