2013 Barnstorming Tours

Completed
Tuesday, January 1, 2013 to Tuesday, December 31, 2013

In the tradition of the mighty Populist Movement, Move to Amend's experienced and acclaimed speakers crisscrossed the country in 2013, spreading the word about the campaign to amend the constitution and inspiring action!

Our speakers give rousing one hour talks telling the story of the American creation myth and the Constitution as it pertains to Corporate Personhood and illegitimate but legal corporate constitutional rights, followed by about an hour of facilitated discussion / Q and A. 

The goal of Move to Amend's Barnstorming Tours is to educate, inspire action, and identify local organizers to start Move to Amend Affiliate groups.
