For communities of faith and ethical convictions considering passing the resolution in support of the
Move to Amend “28th We the People Amendment”
On an almost daily basis, passage of the 28th Amendment becomes increasingly important: Climate Change is an existential threat to our nation and our world; the reality of political, governmental and corporate abuse becomes more evident. Passage of the amendment opens the way to real corrective measures becoming a reality!
Actions you can take to multiply your efforts beyond passing the resolution:
1. Register the passage of your resolution on the web site at: https://movetoamend.org/resolutions-map
2. Sign (and encourage others to sign) the Interfaith Caucus (IFC) “Registration” petition. This will add you to the national data base, a powerful indication of support around the country, (or) go to www.movetoamend.org/interfaith-caucus and complete the on-line form to register with IFC. Send to Michael Greenman, IFC Moderator (contact at 614-898-5825 for mailing address).
3. If you wish to support our efforts, but don’t have time or energy to be active please make a contribution (single or sustaining) to Move to Amend at: https://movetoamend.org.
4. Commit to becoming a “Champion” for this project. (A Champion is a person who is fully committed to supporting the movement towards the amendment).
