From the People Who Brought California Prop 59, The Overturn Citizens United Act
MOVI is a volunteer organization of democracy advocates dedicated to ending corporate rule and promoting civic engagement.
JOIN MOVI’s Campaign to Make California Prop 59 Compliant
With the passage of Prop 59 California voters instructed our elected officials “to use all of their constitutional authority” to deliver to the people of California an amendment to the US Constitution which would remove Big Money from our elections by allowing for the “full regulation or limitation of campaign contribution and spending,“ and would “make clear” that corporations cannot claim constitutional rights.
Every member of California’s Congressional Delegation received this instruction. There are 55 members of the California Congressional Delegation, 53 in the House of Representatives and 2 in the US Senate.
Our goal is for each of them to sign on as a co-author of the Constitutional Amendment to “Overturn Citizens United.” If our CA MoCs refuse to comply with the voters’ instruction we will work to replace them in 2018 with those who will.
Passage of a constitutional amendment will require 292 votes in the US Congress. California’s 53 votes is nearly 20% of that total. Together we can make this happen.
Is your California Member of Congress Prop 59 compliant?
We often hear that achieving Constitutional Amendments is hard. We don’t disagree. It’s supposed to be hard. What we hear less often are reports charting the progress that’s already been made and is being made every day by Americans towards an amendment to overturn Citizens United.
