The National Campaign to End Corporate Personhood and Demand Real Democracy! Move to Amend
“Never depend upon institutions or government to solve any problem. All social movements are founded by, guided by, motivated and seen through by the passion of individuals.” -Margaret Mead
While there are many corporations that provide essential goods and services, there are others whose greed outstrips any benefit to our society. It is the bad actors that Move to Amend seeks to address with our Constitutional amendment to limit corporate power.
U.S. economic policy is not based on building strong local economies, entrepreneurship and vibrant small businesses, securing family farms and local food production, or manufacturing products; it is based almost entirely on what is good for Wall Street and huge multi-national corporations.
In the midst of all this, Move to Amend has experienced a red-letter year. Our message is resonating in more and more communities, but we still have work to do. We’re halfway to our goal of 500,000 signatures on our Move to Amend petition.
With four weeks to go, we can still make a big impact on our 2012 goal, but we need your help to make it happen.
We’re asking each of you to use your networks to get 10 more signatures on the petition in the next four weeks -- share this link: http://movetoamend.nationbuilder.com/petition. If everybody participates, we’ll far exceed our goal and expand our reach 10 times over.
Don’t forget that you can also download petition forms or just have your friends use their phone to text the word SIGN to 1-707-656-4019.
It’s easy to get those ten signatures at the meetings and gatherings you’ll be attending this month!
We’ve worked hard this year and succeeded in so many ways. Let’s use the next four weeks to accomplish our one remaining goal for 2012 — 500,000 signatures on the Move to Amend petition!

We, the People of the United States of America, reject the U.S. Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling, and move to amend our Constitution to firmly establish that money is not speech, and that human beings, not corporations, are persons entitled to constitutional rights.
