Money Out Voters In - San Diego Chapter

Broadway, San Diego by Justin Brown, on Flickr Welcome to the San Diego Chapter home page!

MOVI is a non-partisan, non-profit, grassroots organization dedicated to restoring the influence of ordinary Americans over our government by mobilizing public support for legislation and a constitutional amendment, which will:

  • end the corrupting influence of special interest money over our politics, and
  • clearly establish that only living persons, not corporations, are entitled to certain constitutional rights.

Read on to find out how you can contribute to this national effort by taking action here in San Diego!

Current Actions

VOTE 'YES' on Prop 59!

After years of hard work from the core MOVI team in LA, Michele Sutter and company were able to get a question on the ballot which gives voters the opportunity to instruct Congress to overturn Citizens United -- the disastrous U.S. Supreme Court case which opened the floodgates for corporate cash into our elections.

Public Outreach & Education Efforts

In addition to GOTV (get out the vote) efforts this fall, we are in the planning stages of several public events which are designed to engage, inform, and encourage the public toward action.  Please join us!
