MTA-freeway-banner-OMG-300x200.pngOnly one week to go until Move to Amend’s National Day of Action Against Corporate Personhood…
127 years ago, on May 10, 1886 in the Santa Clara v. Southern Pacific Railroad case, the Court is said to have given corporations their first foothold in the Constitution.
Corporate lawyers carved out their first Constitutional foothold, claiming that corporations have rights under the 14th Amendment — the amendment passed to ensure equal protection of African Americans after slavery was abolished.
Since then, there has been case after case in which the Court expanded the Constitutional “rights” of corporations.
This May 10 is the 127th “birthday” of corporate personhood and Move to Amend activists will be raising our voices in protest nationwide.
Join our volunteers in displaying freeway banners and signs with messages calling for our amendment to the Constitution.

MOVE TO AMEND

PO Box 610, Eureka CA 95502 | (707) 269-0984 | www.MoveToAmend.org

We, the People of the United States of America, reject the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling, and move to amend our Constitution to firmly establish that money is not speech, and that human beings, not corporations, are persons entitled to constitutional rights.
