We the People Wednesdays - June 12, 2024

Happy We The People Wednesday!

This We The People Wednesday, the Move to Amend National Team is excited to introduce Cole Bennett - our newest Co-Director / Political Justice Director!

After finishing a year-long National Fellowship with Move to Amend and earning a Juris Doctorate from the Georgia State University College of Law, Cole is eager to shift his efforts to using his political and legal expertise full-time to eliminate corporate constitutional rights, pass the We The People Amendment, and build the foundation of a lasting democracy movement within the burgeoning political hub of Atlanta and across the entire southeast region. 


Just this past weekend, Cole was able to represent Move to Amend at the first national convention of the American Constitution Society not held in Washington DC, but instead in Atlanta in tacit recognition of the importance and impact of work being done in Georgia.

Cole and Move to Amend have also prioritized Georgia’s recently elected progressive senators, Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, as prime potential candidates for introducing the We The People Amendment into the Senate. 

In addition to organizing and lobbying on behalf of the We The People Amendment, Cole will also be involved in solidarity work and grassroots movement building with not only Move to Amend affiliates and advocates, but also various, like-minded organizations and movements that advance our collective mission in the southeast.

Presently, Cole and Metro Atlanta Move to Amend are working with the People’s Campaign to Stop Cop City and the Cop City Vote democracy movement emerging in Atlanta in response to the city’s disastrous $110 million dollar police training facility and the confluence of corporate and government corruption surrounding it. 

While there are a variety of reasons both good and bad that Atlanta and the state of Georgia have moved into the forefront of our political landscape, it's undeniably an exciting time for this movement and Move to Amend. Our new Political Justice Director brings an enthusiastic vigor to the Move to Amend National Team and our efforts in Atlanta in the hopes of meeting this moment, but as always, we need your help! 

Please consider helping our work by calling Senators Ossoff and Warnock and urging them to support the We The People Amendment and introduce it to the Senate, as well as calling your local representatives and asking them to cosponsor HJR54! Right now, we are only 16 cosponsors away from our goal of 100 cosponsors in the House of Representatives by the end of the year. One of those could be yours!
