Our new movie, The Story of Citizens United v. FEC, didn’t just tell the story of corporate influence in American democracy — it also described a couple of key solutions to the problem.
The most far-reaching of those solutions is an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that makes it clear that corporations do not have the same constitutional rights as real, live human beings.
Although a Constitutional amendment is a tall order, there’s a smart strategy our friends at Free Speech for People are organizing: going around the mess in Washington and taking our case to the states, which have an important role to play in amending the Constitution. There are already 8 state legislatures considering resolutions in support of a constitutional amendment and Free Speech for People is working to pass those and get more introduced.
That’s where you come in.
You can help Free Speech for People by calling your state legislators to ask them to support a state resolution on a constitutional amendment.
Can you take a minute to make a couple of quick calls now?

You can find your state legislators and call them for free with the online tool linked above, provided by our friends at Free Speech for People
This is a great, easy way to make a difference on one of the most important fights of our lifetime.
Thanks so much for all you do,
