Move to Amend volunteers put in countless hours to end corporate personhood and get big money out of politics. I’m so proud of these regular folks who are just like you and me, stepping up to try to save our democracy from the stranglehold of unchecked corporate greed. Here are some of the ways they have been stepping up:
They courageously step out of their comfort zones and meet with government officials to hold them accountable to the public.
They spend hours tabling at local events to raise awareness and rally support for We the People amendment.
They facilitate outreach activities like town hall style meetings and movie screening to educate their communities about the dangers of corporate personhood and money in politics.
Just this year alone they’ve recruited 9,762 (and counting!) new people to join the Movement to Amend!
These tireless and generous volunteers need our help. As you’ve probably heard, we are holding a National Leadership Summit in Washington DC in June.
Everyone is invited, whether you have experience with Move to Amend or not. But it is CRITICAL that we get our volunteer leaders to this event.
The Leadership Summit is an incredible opportunity for these hardworking democracy champions to come together, network, and develop the movement building skills necessary to take our efforts to the next level.
They’ll have the opportunity to participate in a series of dynamic, engaging workshops and round table discussions centered around building the movement to amend in every community across this nation.
The weekend will culminate with a National Lobby Day where we storm the halls of Congress to lobby our representatives to join our movement by co-sponsoring the We The People Amendment!
The Leadership Summit will also feature one-on-one consultation sessions where Move to Amend group leaders can meet with members of our National Team to get support and strategic feedback on their local action plans for the year ahead. This feedback is incredibly valuable to our volunteers, some of whom are brand new to organizing.
BUT, not everyone who wants to attend the Summit has the resources to attend. That’s why YOUR support is so crucial. You can ensure that ALL of our hardworking volunteers have an opportunity to come, regardless of income or distance.
Please help make sure that our volunteers don’t miss out on this crucial event to grow the movement to amend. Please do your part today and help make this year’s summit accessible to everyone.
Thank you for stepping up!
