Support a Constitutional Amendment: Corporations Are Not People

SIGN THE PETITION

We’re asking every state legislator in the country to back adopting resolutions supporting the only remedy we have left to correct the Supreme Court’s awful Citizens United decision: a constitutional amendment clarifying that corporations are not people.

It will take a long term campaign but a constitutional amendment is the only way to permanently undo the ruling.

Citizens United has already had a huge impact on our democracy. In 2010 spending on elections topped $4 billion, by far the most ever spent on a midterm election and even matching the total spent in the 2008 presidential election.

We’ve amended our Constitution before in moments when we needed to make fundamental changes to how our country works. Right now is one of those moments because giving corporations the full First Amendment rights of people is threatening the integrity of our democratic process.

A compiled petition with your individual comment will be presented to your state legislators.”
