Request to Introduce the We the People Amendment in the Senate
On January 30, the We the People Amendment (HJR 48) was introduced in the House of Representatives and I'm writing to ask you to introduce this Resolution in the Senate as well to address political and electoral corruption. Please introduce the We the People Amendment to your colleagues. For the past seven years the Movement to Amend the Constitution has been clear: We must both abolish corporate constitutional rights AND get big money out of politics. It is not enough to simply overturn Citizens United, we must go to the root of the problem. Tens of thousands of volunteers across the nation have been building a grassroots movement over the past seven years from the bottom up. This movement came from everyday people taking this issue to their city governments, to town meeting debates, to candidate forums, to newspaper opinion pages, and to the ballot box directly. Over 740 cities, towns, and counties have now passed amendment resolutions. Polling shows 80% of the American public believes that corporations should not have the same rights as people. State legislatures have been pressured to stand up as well, with 18 states passing resolutions calling for an amendment. Please join your colleagues in the House by introducing the We the People Amendment to let your constituents know you will do all you can to defend our Democratic Republic and We the People against special interests with deep pockets who are corrupting our democracy. To introduce this important Resolution, please contact the office of Rep. Rick Nolan, the bill's lead sponsor in the House of Representatives. Thank you.
This message is being sent to your federal senators.
