Fort Atkinson Move to Amend Affiliate Initial Meeting

Sierra Pope and a colleague from South Central Wisconsin Move to Amend Organization ( ) will make a PowerPoint presentation, which will be followed by discussion and the beginnings of our petition campaign. We plan to start a petition campaign in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, but we will hopefully have people coming from Whitewater, Jefferson, Lake Mills, and Watertown, some of them we hope will take up the cause of doing the petition campaign in their areas. Our immediate goal will be to get petitions signed. Signatures from 15 % of the registered voters (1,112 for Fort Atkinson, 594 for the city of Jefferson, 1,282 for Whitewater, 405 for Lake mills, or 8,214 for Jefferson County) would force a referendum on the November 6 General Election ballot, asking voters whether they support a constitutional amendment saying corporations are not people and money is not speech. We expect the referendum to pass. Then we would ask the city of Fort Atkinson to pass a resolution to send on to the US Congress calling for the constitutional amendment, to be sent back to the states for ratification.
