Advance the Democracy Is For People Campaign
Tell Us How You’d Like to Help in the Next Stage of the Campaign to Overturn the Supreme Court’s Citizens United Ruling
We’ve made a lot of progress this year pushing for a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, take democracy off the auction block, and preserve constitutional rights for people not corporations
Now, we’re asking you to help us expand our campaign efforts this summer and fall. There are three important ways you can be involved:
1. Engaging Members of Congress
Ultimately, passage of a constitutional amendment hinges on our ability to pressure and persuade Congress to advance it. This summer and fall, we’ll organize with you to reach out to your congresspeople.
2. Ongoing Passage of City and Town Resolutions and Similar Measures
City resolutions, local ballot questions and similar measures are being introduced every day. We’ll continue to support you and others who are advancing local resolutions in your communities.
3. Building for State Work
The progress we’ve made in 2012 is making it possible to build support for resolutions supporting a constitutional amendment in additional states this fall and next year. We’ll be working with supporters like you, allied organizations and others to lay the groundwork for these state campaigns. And, in a few cases, there may be state ballot initiatives underway in 2012 that could be game-changing for the amendment effort as well.
