Directly challenging the 5-4 Supreme Court decision in Citizens United v. FEC and the usurpation of human rights by global corporations, eleven states and more than 500 cities and towns have now enacted resolutions calling on Congress to pass the 28th Amendment and send it to the states for ratification. Several more states are poised to act, and Congress is getting the message, as various amendment bills are being introduced in the House and Senate to join what promises to be a historic national debate (for three examples of recent amendments, see here, here and here.)
To discuss this growing campaign, I’m going to be in Maine, New York, Colorado and Oregon in the coming weeks with Free Speech For People, Maine Citizens For Clean Elections, Slow Money, the Illahee Lecture Series, the American Constitution Society, and more (all events are listed here). If you can, come on out for the conversation and hard work of overturning Citizens United and restoring American republican democracy. Hope to see you and to work with you to preserve government of, for and by the people.
