Money Out Voters In - Santa Barbara Chapter
Money Out / Voters In - Santa Barbara is pleased to be the first MOVI chapter outside of Los Angeles.
MOVI is the sponsor of the voter instruction Proposition 59, The Overturn Citizen's United Act. Prop 59 will give Californians the means to
instruct the US Congress to draft and pass and the CA Legislature to ratify
an amendment or amendments to the US Constitution to
OVERTURN CITIZENS UNITED
WILL YOU PLEDGE TO VOTE YES ON PROP 59?
Pledge to Vote YES on 59
The Santa Barbara chapter of MOVI was formed in August 2014, becoming the first MOVI chapter outside Los Angeles. From August 2014 through July 2016 MOVI-Santa Barbara collected 1,392 petition signatures to "Overturn Citizens United". Santa Barbara is a city that enjoys festivals, and MOVI-SB took full advantage of the festival schedule for our petitioning activities: Earth Day, I Madonnari (the Italian Festival), Solstice, the French Festival, the Greek Festival, the Jewish Festival, and finally the ten days of Santa Barbara Fiesta. We were also very active in supporting the California Clean Money Campaign's various ballot initiatives to ensure accurate identification of the funders of political advertisements for candidates or ballot measures. And now Santa Barbara is gearing up for the final push for "Proposition 59: Overturn Citizens United"!
Meet, Greet & Collect Petitions at Earth Day
We are petitioning to re-instate the Overturn Citizens United Initiative (Prop 49) and also for the California DISCLOSE Act (AB700). Come to Alameda Park on Saturday and Sunday (April 18 and 19). You will find our Money OUT / Voters IN Booth in the "Public Square" between Sola & Micheltorena Streets
