Request to Speak Up For the We The People Act
On Thursday, November 9th, the Joint Committee on Veterans and Federal Affairs will hold a hearing on the We the People Act (H. 1926). As your constituent, I ask you to call or write the Chairs of the Joint Committee on Veterans and Federal Affairs, Representative John Lawn and Senator Mike Rush, to express your strong support for the We the People Act. For the past seven years, tens of thousands of volunteers in Massachusetts and across the United States have been building a grassroots movement from the bottom up to amend the US Constitution. This Movement to Amend the Constitution has been clear: We must both abolish corporate constitutional rights AND get big money out of politics. Overturning Citizens United is not enough. We must go to the root of the problem. 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. Polling shows 80% of the American public believes that corporations should not have the same rights as people. Over 200 cities, towns, and counties in Massachusetts have passed amendment resolutions to address the Supreme Court-created doctrines of corporate constitutional rights and money equals political speech. As a state legislator, you have the opportunity and responsibility to act to defend our Democratic Republic and We the People of Massachusetts from control by global corporations, billionaires and special interests. Please call or write your colleagues in the Joint Veterans and Federal Affairs Committee today to express your support for the We the People Act (H. 1926). If at all possible, please attend the November 9th hearing at 2pm and stand with Senator Jamie Eldridge and Representative Carmine Gentile in sponsoring this bill. Please inform me when you have taken this important action to restore our democracy to “We the People!" Thank you.
This message is being sent to your state representative and senator.
