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 Michigan.

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!

Resolutions & Ordinances Passed

Ann Arbor City Council

Ferndale City Council

Lansing City Council

Ypsilanti City Council

On September 11, 2012, Grand Rapids Mayor George Heartwell and four of the six members of the Grand Rapids City Commission sent a letter to Michigan Governor Rick Snyder expressing concern over Citizens United and affirming the priority of natural persons. While the letter text does not specifically suggest or urge a constitutional amendment, it is considered part of the constitutional amendment advocacy by Move to Amend and allied organizations.

 

 


Endorsing Organizations

More than 600 local, state, and national organizations have come forward to support the passage of the We the People Amendment. Below are the Michigan-based organizations that formally call on our federal representatives to pass the We the People Amendment, and our local and state representatives to enact resolutions and legislation to advance this effort.
