Keyan Bliss - Grassroots Director

Why I support Move to Amend

Hi Friends! It's Keyan Bliss. Please join me in helping raise money for the grassroots movement to end corporate rule and get big money out of politics by setting up a monthly donation to Move to Amend on this page!

As the grassroots volunteer coordinator for Move to Amend’s national coalition, I give $28/month to support our work for the 28th Amendment. I’m calling on you to help us continue this work by making a donation today!

For the past eight years, Move to Amend has been working to get to the root problem at the core of a dangerous 2010 Supreme Court decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission by amending the US Constitution to unequivocally state that constitutional rights belong to human beings, not corporations, and that money is not equal to “free speech” so it can be regulated in our political campaigns and elections.

For me personally, I've chosen to work with Move to Amend for the past 6 years for two key reasons:

1.Move to Amend is the only organization that is framing the issues of "corporate constitutional rights" and "money equals speech" beyond the obvious political implications -- we consider this as a human rights issue that intersects with every struggle for justice and equality today.

2. Move to Amend is the only amendment organization that centralizes the dismantling of oppression within its coalition building and grassroots organizing strategy.

As long as corporations are considered “persons” with inalienable human rights, and their political spending is considered “protected speech,” they will be able to assert those rights better than any real human being or our communities through their concentration of wealth. And so together, our coalition supports the We The People Amendment (introduced in Congress January 2017 as House Joint Resolution 48). This is the only proposed amendment in Congress that gets to the foundations of corporate rule to make clear that constitutional rights belong to human beings, not corporations,

and get big money out of politics in the same amendment, leaving for no loopholes.

In the last year alone, Move to Amend has more than doubled our number of HJR 48 cosponsors in the US House of Representatives, and have made good headway at getting the We the People Amendment introduced to the US Senate. Over 450,000 people have signed our national petition supporting this amendment. We have over 500 organizational endorsements, and over 800 local resolutions have passed in cities, towns, and counties across the country calling for a 28th Amendment. We’ve been on the ballot over 300 times -- in liberal and conservative communities alike -- and we’ve won every single time usually in landslides over 60%, even 80%! We're also the only amendment organization that has any conservative political support, including a Republican co-sponsor and a Republican Party organizational endorsement.

There are a lot of worthy causes and movements to contribute your time and money to, but we can’t afford to lose sight of the systemic solutions like the We the People Amendment. And to be strong enough to dig deep to the root of the problem, we need a movement organization that can fund itself in a healthy, sustainable way -- independent from political and corporate influence. Please consider joining me as a monthly sustainer for the movement to amend the Constitution!

A sincere thank you for being part of our growing movement to achieve real democracy of, by, and for ALL people!

    Wisconsin - Move to Amend

    Home | News | Events


    Wisconsin has been home to several advocates and affiliates mobilizing over 5.8 million people across the Badger State.

    Move to Amend has partnered with Wisconsin United to Amend -- a non-partisan, trans-ideological volunteer-based organization. It has succeeded in passing local resolutions and ballot initiatives across Wisconsin. In total, 3.3 million people (58% of Wisconsinites) live in jurisdictions that have called for the We the People Amendment, and the referenda pass with an average approval of 80%!

    Communities in Support

    Alongside hundreds of thousands of individuals have signed our Motion to Amend petition, there have been over 700 communities and states that have passed public resolutions, ordinances, and ballot initiatives supporting the We the People Amendment. Below is a list of resolutions that were passed by elected political bodies (i.e. state legislatures, or county/city/town/village councils), residents who voted at Town Hall meetings, or by voters following organized ballot campaigns by Move to Amend supporters in Vermont.

    Passing local resolutions in support of amending the constitution is a great way to educate the public and to send a strong signal to legislators that people care about these issues. Click here for information on how to organize a resolution campaign in your community!

    On March 6, 2012, Article 10 passed in Charlotte. It reads: “Shall voters of the Town of Charlotte urge the Vermont Congressional Delegation and the United States Congress to propose a United States Constitutional amendment for the States’ consideration which provides that money is not political speech, that corporations are not persons under the United States Constitution, that the General Assembly of the State of Vermont pass a similar resolution, and that the town send its resolution to Vermont State and Federal representatives within thirty days of passage of this measure? Advisory motion only.”

    On March 6, 2012, Article III passed in South Burlington. It reads: “In light of the United States Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision that equates money with speech and gives corporations rights constitutionally intended for natural persons, shall the city of South Burlington vote on March 6, 2012 (town meeting date) to urge the Vermont Congressional Delegation and the U.S. Congress to propose a U.S. Constitutional amendment for the States’ consideration which provides that money is not speech, and that corporations are not persons under the U.S. Constitution, that the General Assembly of the State of Vermont pass a similar resolution, and that the town send its resolution to Vermont State and Federal representatives within thirty days of passage of this measure?”

    On March 6, 2012, a resolution passed in Underhill.

    On March 5, 2012, a resolution passed in Williston.

    On April 19, 2011, the Vermont General Assembly passed Joint Resolution 11 (J.R.S. 11)!

    Introduced on January 21 by Senator Virginia “Ginny” Lyons [Chittenden] et al., J.R.S.11 passed the Senate on April 12 and the House on April 19. It disagreed with the “money is speech” holdings in Buckley and Citizens United and urged the adoption of the S.J.Res. 29 constitutional amendment in the US Congress, to provide that money is not speech and corporations are not persons under the Constitution, and to affirm natural persons’ constitutional rights.
