Move to Amend local affiliates in Washington state, as well as Move to Amend National, are coalition partners in a group called "Fix Democracy First."
Amendment Working Groups
Jefferson County Move to Amend
We The People Kitsap County
After the success of Initiative 735 in getting the State of Washington on record as the 18th state calling for a Constitutional Amendment that would end decisions like Citizens United, WAmend (the Washington Coalition to Amend the Constitution) did not want to dissolve. Instead is was decided that the energies put into this movement would continue on, and WAmend has now merged with Fix Democracy First, which was a major coalition member and backer of I-735.
Fix Democracy First, formerly Washington Public Campaigns, decided to expand it's focus from public financing of elections, to include other issues related to achieving a true democratic system, such as supporting the Washington Voting Rights Act, automatic voter registration, alternative voting systems such as Ranked Choice Voting, and continuing the push for a 28th Amendment. The merge with WAmend has helped expand outreach throughout Washington as we continue our efforts both locally and statewide.
