Time to Put the Heat on Congress

June 6, 2018

This Monday, Move to Amenders will be in Washington DC putting the heat on Congress to support the We the People Amendment. We need help from those of you back at home!

The good news is it will only take a few minutes!

We need you to make three phone calls this morning and say two easy things to your Congressmember and Senators:

#1 -- To send a staff person to attend our Legislative Briefing this Thursday at 11am. We're told that calls from constituents are the BEST way to get good attendance.

"Why We Need a Constitutional Amendment to End Corporate Personhood"
11:00am-12:00pm on Thursday, June 7th in Cannon Building, Room 122

#2 -- To work with Move to Amend to support the We the People Amendment (House Joint Resolution 48). Let them know they can learn more about it at the briefing this Thursday.

--> Click here for the script and to get the numbers for your Senators and House Representative. You only need to call their Washington DC offices.

--> Click here to find out if your Representative is already a co-sponsor. If they are you don't need to call them, but you do still need to call both of your Senators.

This is a really easy way to pitch in! It will only take a few minutes and you'll help make sure our Lobby Day is a success by generating a constituent buzz in advance of MondayClick here to get started!

After you make your calls, please reply to this message to let us know what kind of heat you brought.

Thank you so much!!
