White Supremacy is Anti-Democracy

August 14, 2017

The tragedy in Charlottesville has brought race and racism to the surface of national attention.

Again.

Sadly, the violence fomented by the KKK, neo-Nazis and other “alt-right” white nationalists on Saturday is the latest in a long list of actions throughout our nation’s history of white supremacy by individuals and institutions that includes slavery sanctioned by the Constitution, attempted genocide of native peoples by the U.S. government, lynchings, systemic rape, broken treaty promises, beatings, arrests “for being black,” voter suppression, internments, income disparity, deportations, and housing, education and employment discrimination – among others.

Racism and white supremacy are one of many forms of oppression that our nation has not honestly and thoroughly acknowledged – let alone rectified.

Authentic democracy simply cannot exist in a culture of racism, misogyny, homophobia, and other forms of institutional and cultural oppression that excludes large numbers of human beings and denies their fundamental human rights.

Democracy Convention: A Call To Transform Our Political System

August 12, 2017

Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap, National Director of Move To Amend, one of the main convention sponsors, proclaimed that the moral argument for overturning the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision is what will bring people together to demand a 28th Amendment. Move To Amend supports the We the People Amendment that states money is not speech and corporations are not people.

Koch Brothers Orchestrate Grassroots Effort To Lower Corporate Taxes, Documents Show

July 26, 2017

The strategy memo lays out a five-phase plan for passing a version of tax reform that is favorable to the Koch donor network. The Koch brothers make clear that their ideal tax reform legislation would exclude the idea of an import or carbon tax, while focusing on broad reductions in the corporate tax rate.

The Grinch Who Stole Democracy

July 19, 2017

After Donald Trump ascended to the presidency, despite losing the popular vote by an astounding margin, there just wasn't a lot of cheering to be heard in Whoville. Trump is like The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, with the notable exception that Trump doesn't have a heart, not even one ten sizes too small.  

Our mission is to establish authentic, participatory democracy for all people, not corporations. Our first goal is to help build a diverse democracy movement capable of passing the We the People Amendment. The amendment abolishes corporate constitutional rights (corporate personhood) and money as free political speech. 

If you're new to Move to Amend, or joining the growing resistance; if you want to do more, but don't know where to start, or if your #1 issue just hit a brick wall built by the corporatized state, we invite you to volunteer with Move to Amend, the Campaign to Legalize Democracy!

The Freedom of Oppress

July 16, 2017

Will you consider a gift to Move To Amend to help us get to the Democracy Convention where we will educate hundreds of people on how they can help democratize the Constitution?

There’s no way that the wealthy 1% that our government serves can continue to oppress us if we all stand in solidarity against them. Attending the Democracy Convention in Minneapolis is a crucial piece to attaining a government that works to preserve the freedom and well-being of “We the People.” The conferences and workshops that we will host will impact hundreds.
