Move to Amend Los Angeles: Help get Rep. Karen Bass back on board!

In the 115th Congress, Representative Bass co-sponsored HJR48, our We the People Amendment. When she cosponsored this bill she committed her support to the passage of a 28th amendment that would end corporate rule and get big money out of politics… but she has not supported HJR48 in this Congress.

Will you help pressure Representative Karen Bass to support We the People Amendment by calling her today?

Now more than ever we must hold our elected officials accountable to the people that they represent. For too long has the corrupting influence of corporate personhood and money defined as free speech, outweighed the voice and demands of the people.

House Joint Resolution 48, the We the People Amendment establishes that human beings, not corporations, have constitutional rights, and that money is not a form of political speech to be used to influence our elections. HJR48 currently has 74 cosponsors in the House of Representatives. 

Please call Representative Bass and urge her to join her colleagues and recommit her support to HJR48.

Hello, my name is _____, I am a constituent of Representative Karen Bass.  I really appreciated that in the 115th Congress, Rep. Bass cosponsored House Joint Resolution 48, Move to Amend’s “We the People Amendment.” Today, I am calling to request that she cosponsor HJR48 again in this congress and continue her prior commitment to support the passage of a 28th Amendment making clear constitutional rights belong to people not corporations and that money is not equal to political speech. 

In her consideration of co-sponsoring this bill, I would also ask that she schedule a virtual meeting with a group of her constituents, to further discuss the urgency of her support to pass HJR48 the We the People Amendment. I will be emailing your scheduler’s office this information with an email address to reply and schedule a meeting.

Thank you for your time.
