After Donald Trump ascended to the presidency, despite losing the popular vote by an astounding margin, there just wasn't a lot of cheering to be heard in Whoville.

Our mission is to establish authentic, participatory democracy for all people, not corporations. Our first goal is to help build a diverse democracy movement capable of passing the We the People Amendment. The amendment abolishes corporate constitutional rights (corporate personhood) and money as free political speech.
If you're new to Move to Amend, or joining the growing resistance; if you want to do more, but don't know where to start, or if your #1 issue just hit a brick wall built by the corporatized state, we invite you to volunteer with Move to Amend, the Campaign to Legalize Democracy!
The Salt Lake City Council and Mayor joined the city's voters - and 434 other municipalities nationwide - in calling for a constitutional amendment that would end corporate personhood and reverse the corrupting influence of money in politics.
Move To Amend Salt Lake has been keeping up the pressure on the Salt Lake City Council to take decisive steps toward limiting the power of corporations in local government. A large group attended the January 21st council meeting, but we need more people to email/phone their city council representative (and mayor) ASAP.
The nearly $1.4 million spent in the mayoral race equates to $36.71 per vote of the 38,126 ballots cast.
It's time we used simple, common sense solutions for transparency and accountability in government. We need to make it clear to our elected leaders and political candidates that there is no room for dark money in our Utah elections
