Washington


Move to Amend local affiliates in Washington state, as well as Move to Amend National, are coalition partners in a group called "WAmend".  

WAmend's mission is to put the State of Washington on record as calling for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

The amendment will empower our elected representatives to put reasonable limits on how much money corporations, special interest groups, and billionaires spend on influencing elections. We believe this amendment is needed to win back a democracy that works for ALL Americans, not just the wealthiest few.

The amendment would settle for once and for all that:

  • Constitutional rights belong only to individual people, NOT corporations;
  • Spending money is NOT free speech under the First Amendment;
  • Governments are empowered to regulate political contributions and expenditures to prevent undue influence; and
  • Political contributions and expenditures must be promptly disclosed to the public.
