On Friday, January 20th, ADA is joining Move to Amend and democracy advocates across the U.S. to hold more than 80 rallies in front of federal court buildings, including the U.S. Supreme Court. These rallies are the launching ground for grassroots campaigns focusing on ballot initiatives and resolutions rejecting the "Citizens United" decree for unlimited, anonymous corporate spending used to influence our elections.
Momentum has been building, with resolutions passed by city councils in Los Angeles and New York City; also the Montana Supreme Court asserted that states have the right to prevent the corporate purchase of their governments. Let's work together and make this happen in states, towns, and cities across the country.
Here are some actions you can take:
- Find a January 20th event near you here.
- Organize your local community for a ballot initiative or resolution!
- Check out the toolkit and sign up here for an organizing webinar. (The next webinar is Tuesday, January 10th.)
- Learn more about this initiative at Move to Amend's website.
- Join "Occupy the Courts" by signing up here.
We'll be at the Washington, D.C. event, at the U.S. Supreme Court Building at noon on Friday, January 20th, along with allies, radio talk show host Thom Hartmann, and Move To Amend national spokesman David Cobb.
At last, the American people are beginning to focus on restricting corporate influence on our elections, our government, and the policies that impact our lives. Now is our chance to seize the upper hand.
