RESOLVED, SEIU Minnesota State Council, stands with the Move to Amend campaign and communities across the country to defend democracy from the corrupting effects of undue corporate power by amending the United States Constitution to establish that:
1. Only human beings, not corporations or other legal entities, are persons endowed with constitutional rights, and
2. Money is not speech, and therefore regulating political contributions and spending is not equivalent to limiting political speech.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that SEIU Minnesota State Council, hereby instructs our state and federal representatives to enact resolutions and legislation to advance this effort.
Adopted: February 2017
