Overrule the Court -- Sign the Motion to AmendAbout the Campaign to Legalize Democracy:

On January 21, 2010, with its ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations are persons, and are thus entitled by the U.S. Constitution to fund campaigns without limit and, consequently, co-op our government. This decision surrenders many of the individual rights of Americans to Corporations.

The Campaign to Legalize Democracy is a coalition of grassroots organizations that are working to fundamentally shift American culture from the current state of corporate rule to one where the people rule. They are working from the bottom up–from communities to cities to states and then finally to the national level–to pass a constitutional amendment abolishing corporate personhood, removing the stranglehold corporations have on our democracy and allowing the people to take power once more.

If you haven’t already done so, please add your name to the 77,000+ who have already signed the Motion to Amend.
