4th of July Call to ActionJoin Move to Amend this 4th of July as we Declare Our Independence from Corporate Rule in communities across the nation!
Let's educate our fellow citizens about the corporate threat to our democracy, and get them engaged in the movement to take back our country!
Need some inspiration for what to do? How about...
  • Dress as corporate judges and corporate "persons" and dance and sing about the takeover of our democracy in your local 4th of July parade
  • Hold an "I Miss Democracy" pageant
  • Host a Corporate Personhood picnic
  • Stage a human-corporate mock wedding
  • Organize a birthday party for Democracy
  • And more!
Find tips and ideas for these events and more on our website... or invent your own creative ways to educate your community about Corporate Personhood and the Move to Amend campaign.
Don't have a Move to Amend affiliate group in your community yet? Start one up! 
4th of July is a great time to spread the word and expand the movement.
Help us collect signatures and grow the number of local Move to Amend groups across the country. Americans of all political persuasions are fed up! Let's offer them an opportunity to join our cause. 
Yours for democracy,
Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap
Move to Amend Executive Committee & National Field Organizing Coordinator
PS - On Tuesday this week the City of West Allis, WI became the latest city to pass our resolution calling for an amendment to declare that corporations are not people and money is not speech. West Allis voters approved the measure by 70%!
What is particularly interesting is that the election was in a working class town that has trended conservative in recent years and Tuesday was the Republican Primary in Wisconsin. 70% support means Republicans voted for Move to Amend big time!
Hats off to our Milwaukee-based group, Southeast Wisconsin Move to Amend, who spearheaded the effort.

We, the People of the United States of America, reject the U.S. Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling, and move to amend our Constitution to firmly establish that money is not speech, and that human beings, not corporations, are persons entitled to constitutional rights.
