Every year at this time, US taxpayers (who bother to read news) are treated to a parade of stories about taxes and tax policy. We learn about the citizens who work multiple jobs and pay their taxes, while falling farther and farther behind in an economy that clearly exists to redistribute wealth upwards.
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:
The 2018 campaigns have begun. Now is the time to urge Sen. Merkley to work with Move to Amend and introduce a Senate version of HJR 48.
Move to Amend, the national campaign to abolish corporate constitutional rights and eliminate big money from elections, will host a community forum on “Creating an Authentic, Partipatory Democracy” with guest speaker Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap, the national director of the organization.
A small, ostensibly moneyless organization warrants investigation and front-page placement. Yet the many democracy movements across the country are never talked about.
