Eyes on the Senate

May 22, 2017

It's been just one year since Move to Amend's leadership unanimously approved our strategic plan to pass the We the People Amendment by 2026.

With only seven months remaining in 2016, we still managed to hit most of our 2016 goals. It looks pretty good for this year, too! With 41 co-sponsors on the We the People Amendment, we've already surpassed our 2017 goal of 35 co-sponsors.

Our 2017 strategic goals also include the introduction of the We the People Amendment in the Senate with five co-sponsors, by the end of the year. And while there is some promising activity in a couple states, we need to create more of a stir. 

Please contact your Senators and ask them to introduce the We the People Amendment in the Senate.

Between the in-district work performed by Move to Amend affiliates, the citizen lobbying performed by our grassroots leaders last May, and the ongoing outreach performed by the national team, the We the People Amendment has been gaining steady traction in the House since it was first introduced.

The same effort can be replicated in the Senate this year, with your assistance. It begins with spreading the message and showing your Senators that there are constituents who care about this issue.

Please contact your Senators and ask them to introduce the We the People Amendment in the Senate.

We'll have a small team making the rounds in the House and Senate, June 7-9. Cold calls can sometimes be effective, but it's always better if a Senate office has heard from at least some of their constituents before we arrive. Now is the perfect time to reach out to your Senators about the We the People Amendment.
