    Lucille Eckrich is a founding member of the Alliance For Just Money, and has served on its Board and Executive Committee since its inception in 2018.

    Private commercial banks are arguably the most powerful corporate sector in the US and globally today because they secured—first in 1694 England and in 1913 in the US—the legally sanctioned privilege to create, via interest-bearing loans, almost all of the means of payment denominated in the currency of our nation that the rest of us, and our governments, use to engage in any and all means of commerce. Though this system failed within 20 years in the US, legislation in the 1930s shored it up and it has more or less survived ever since, extracting more and more wealth from our planet and the 99% into the pockets of the 1% and financial corporations, even on shakier grounds ever since the 2007-08 financial crises.

    This is why members of the Alliance For Just Money (AFJM) believe that changing our money system is necessary to change our world, and that Just Money reform is in concert with Move to Amend’s We the People Amendment. AFJM’s Mission is to research, educate, and organize to pass legislation that makes our money a sovereign liquid asset of the people whose name it bears, whose commerce it circulates, and whose public good and democratic practice it exists to serve now and in perpetuity.

    Hear the presentation and join the discussion about the nature of our existing money and banking system and how to correct its flaws to achieve the justice, sustainability and democracy that MTA and AFJM espouse and that our children and grandchildren demand of us now to ensure a livable world.

    Lucille Eckrich is a founding member of the Alliance For Just Money, and has served on its Board and Executive Committee since its inception in 2018. She majored in economics and African studies in college, and then worked in rural Botswana for three years, after which she did anti-apartheid and urban education work in Chicago until she started graduate school in 1990. It was through her 1998 dissertation on Value in Economics, Ethics, and Education that she came to a critique of modern money that has informed her life's work ever since. Lucille is an Associate Professor Emeritus at Illinois State University, where she taught leadership ethics and philosophy, sociology, and history of education in the College of Education 2001-2020. She has published on the student debt crisis, public school funding, urban education, and philosophy of education.

A bit more, including links to some of her publications, is available here

    Steve Norris is a software developer in Ohio. He studied computer science and music at Denison University where he met his now wife Emily. He took an interest in Socially Responsible Investing when looking into saving for retirement and barriers to structural reforms. Increasingly concerned with the big money in politics, he became co-chair of Move to Amend Cleveland. He heard about monetary reform through John Howell’s presentation for a Move to Amend event and deepened his connection with the Alliance For Just Money through the Youth Caucus. As Vice President of AFJM, Steve has supported social media outreach and diversity, equity, and inclusion work.

    ONLINE: Ecology Network Call

    You are invited to join Ecology Network Call! RSVP below!A space focused on the relationship between corporate power and environmental catastrophe. We’re interested in gathering with folks who, like us, want an end to corporate destruction of the Earth for-profit and to create alternatives for a truly livable world. 

    Move to Amend has focused on ending the constitutional rights for corporations in the United States which are used to get away with; dangerous fracking and pipelines, spewing oil and toxic waste into the water, mountaintop removal, usurping community rights and violating treaties, and every other shameful action corporations take in the pursuit of maximum profit. 

    We have one perspective and hold one piece of the work, but the fight for the survival of animals and ecosystems will take many of us. The is a space where we invite folks who are fighting this fight to come and share with us, help strengthen the public education we do and uplift your work, and connect with other threads of the movement.
