Move To Amend Upcoming Events

The Move To Amend movement is gaining momentum. President Obama just endorsed the idea of a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United. A good amendment would be get the big money out of politics, end the doctrine of money as speech, eliminate corporate personhood and restore our democracy. But as Move To Amend co-founder David Cobb said recently, it won’t happen unless We the People rise up in “righteous anger” against the injustice of corporate rule. Here are three events in the Madison area where you can get out and take action:

Move To Amend Letter to the Editors Party:

Let’s get together, get to know each other better, have some fun and write letters to the editors of Wisconsin newspapers. Bring your laptop, if you have one. Otherwise, just come and have some fun with like-minded people! Letters are completely optional. A dish to pass is also completely optional. Let’s talk, listen and make plans to take back our democracy. If you’re on Facebook, please RSVP now!

When: Saturday, September 8th from 2-5pm

Where: 9209 Eaglewood Drive, Verona, WI 53593

Kick off meeting for Sauk City, Prairie du Sac, Baraboo and Reedsburg:

Mary Zenker, from Sauk City, has organized a presentation by the Move To Amend group in Madison. Senay Goitom, co-chair of South Central Wisconsin Move to Amend (scwmta.org) will make a PowerPoint presentation, which will be followed by a discussion about what we can do to get the big money out of politics, end the doctrine of money as speech and abolish corporate personhood. Others from the Madison Move to Amend group will be on hand to answer your questions and follow-up meetings will be scheduled.

About James Crist

How do we stop America's decline? The country is in trouble and we can all feel it. Where did we go wrong? How do we fix it? We now have an auction-based government, for sale to the highest bidder. Politicians have become nothing more than corporate whores and pawns for the rich. If we want our representatives to represent us, let them get their campaign money from us, their constituents. We have to amend the constitution to get the big money out of politics.
