The Grinch Who Stole Democracy

July 19, 2017

After Donald Trump ascended to the presidency, despite losing the popular vote by an astounding margin, there just wasn't a lot of cheering to be heard in Whoville. Trump is like The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, with the notable exception that Trump doesn't have a heart, not even one ten sizes too small.  

Our mission is to establish authentic, participatory democracy for all people, not corporations. Our first goal is to help build a diverse democracy movement capable of passing the We the People Amendment. The amendment abolishes corporate constitutional rights (corporate personhood) and money as free political speech. 

If you're new to Move to Amend, or joining the growing resistance; if you want to do more, but don't know where to start, or if your #1 issue just hit a brick wall built by the corporatized state, we invite you to volunteer with Move to Amend, the Campaign to Legalize Democracy!

Sign Our Petition to Amend the RI Constitution

May 3, 2013

We, the People of Rhode Island, reject the U.S. Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling and other related cases, and move to amend our state Constitution to firmly establish that money is not speech, and that human beings, not corporations, are persons entitled to constitutional rights.

While we expect the United States Constitution to eventually be amended to refute corporate personhood, the people of RI deserve the opportunity to likewise amend our own Constitution. Please put the "We The People" Amendment as a referendum on the 2014 ballot in Rhode Island.
