On July 28th, 2022, the Austin City Council approved a resolution in support of Move to Amend's "We the People" amendment and movement.
We really appreciate Council Member Kathie Tovo's leadership on writing the resolution as well as her staff and colleagues who co-sponsored the resolution and voted in favor.
Click here for the official press release from Council Member Tovo's office.
We are now working with the Travis County Commissioners Court to get a similar resolution approved at the County level, part of Move to Amend's nation-wide effort to win visible support from all levels of elected officials in support of ending corporate personhood and ensuring that money stops corrupting our democracy.
Join us for a screening of the short film "Legalize Democracy" of Friday, November 19th, from 6:30-7:30pm at the Museum of Human Achievement in East Austin.

U.S. Representative Lloyd Doggett of Texas District 35 (Austin and San Antonio) has co-sponsored House Joint Resolution (HJR) 48, the We the People Amendment!
Rep. Doggett became the first, but hopefully not last, U.S. House Representative from Texas to co-sponsor our amendment in this legislative session.
Doggett agreed to co-sponsor after a video meeting with Austin-based Move to Amend supporters.
