We no longer have democracy in our country because big money owns the political process. We need to overturn the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that a corporation is a person and money is speech (Citizens United v. FEC). To do that, we need 34 states to support an amendment to the U.S. Constitution. 16 states have already passed similar resolutions; 21 are in the process. With citizen Initiative-1329, Washington will be the 17th state.
Local members of the Olympia chapter of Move to Amend are helping to gather signatures for I-1329 which urges an amendment to the Constitution which would clarify that constitutional rights apply to natural persons, not corporations, and authorize greater regulation of political contributions and expenditures. Sign I-1329 by June 30, and let’s get big money out of politics!
You can sign the initiative, get petition forms, and turn in filled forms locally at:
Traditions Café, 300 5th Ave SW, 98501, and Mountain Home Bakery, 5823 Lacey Blvd SE, 98503
You can find volunteers for I-1329 gathering signatures at these upcoming events:
May 31-June 1: Mother Earth News Fair at the fairgrounds in Puyallup
June 7 & June 14: Olympia Farmers Market (weather permitting),
June 21-22: Olympia Pride Festival
