    TEXAS: Jim Hightower invited speaker on ending corporate rule/big money in elections on Dec 7

    Jim Hightower, "America's #1 Populist" (of the justice, democracy and peace variety!) and former Texas Agricultural Commissioner, is the invited speaker at the launch of the Texas Move to Amend Network.

    The virtual program will be Wednesday, December 7 at 7 pm CT.

    Outside groups spent a record $1.6 billion in the 2022 midterms. Each election cycle since 2010 continues the upward trend. Most of that funding has little-to-no transparency. The total cost of the state and federal midterm elections are projected to exceed $16.7 billion.

    Wealthy donors, corporations, and special interest groups have long influenced elections. Citizens United just legalized it.

    Move to Amend was formed in direct response to the Court’s 2010 decision. 

    We are a coalition hundreds of thousands strong. We are committed to: 

      • Social and economic justice

      • Ending corporate rule, the corrupting influence of big money in elections and 

      • Building a vibrant democracy that is genuinely accountable to the people, not corporate interests.

    We’ll discuss our work in the Lone Star State, ways to get involved, and an upcoming training on meeting with your U.S. Representatives.

    We hope to see you there!
