Montanans Move to Amend


Home | News | Events


We are Montana supporters of the nationwide movement, Move to Amend.  Towns and states across the country are calling for the US Constitutional amendment that will overturn the US Supreme Court’s "Citizens United" decision so we can have fair elections.

In Montana, we are bringing together the 75% of Montana voters, with a majority in every county, who showed, in Initiative 166, that they want a level playing field and support the amendment that says...

“Money is property, not speech”
and
“Corporations are not human beings
with constitutional rights"

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 Montana.

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!

Montanans voted 75% to 25% in favor of Initiative No. 166, which charged Montana’s state and federal elected officials with implementing a policy, including by constitutional amendment, that corporations are not human beings with constitutional rights. (Click here and here for more information.)
