Thanks to everyone who wrote to the co-sponsors of Senate Joint
Resolution 19 to ask them to support language that overturns corporate
constitutional rights, rather than merely granting government authority
over campaign spending.
June 18 the Amendment discussion is scheduled for a debate and vote on
language in the Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Human
Rights -- please contact the committee members today.
We cannot allow a proposal that doesn’t address corporate constitutional
rights to get traction -- the amendment must match the demand of our
movement: “A Corporation is Not a Person! Money is Not Free Speech!”
Then, please call the offices of
these Senators so that your message is sure to get their attention.
At the 28th Amendment
"mark-up" on June 18, please vote to include language to the amendment to make clear that
only human beings have constitutional rights -- not artificial entities
created by government.
