Can you deliver the democracy petitions?

Thank you for signing the petition to reverse Citizens United and get big money out of politics! Can you deliver the petitions to your elected officials on June 20?

Host a Petition Delivery!

Dear MoveOn member,

What would Inwood look like if the 99% actually controlled our democracy? 

Imagine a community where all children have access to quality education, corporations pay their fair share, and no one is denied the right to vote based on their gender or the color of their skin.

The reality is that these visions don't stand a chance as long as our system is corrupted by big money and the 1%.

Over the past three weeks, MoveOn members have made thousands of calls and collected hundreds of thousands of petition signatures calling on state and federal elected officials to support a constitutional amendment to get big money out of politics. We're making progress, but we haven't heard from nearly enough politicians.  

So, during the week of June 18-22, we're stepping up the pressure by delivering the petitions to elected officials. If we get them to agree to a constitutional amendment, we can hold them accountable, overturn Citizens United, and get money out of politics once and for all. 

Can you organize a petition delivery at a state legislator or member of Congress' office on June 20?

Yes! I can organize an event!

The public is already on our side: Polls show that a majority of voters support a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United. So now it's time that we increase the political pressure on our elected officials—especially during this critical election year.

On Wednesday, June 20, all across the country, we'll draw a line in the sand and find out where our elected officials stand. If your elected official is not listed in the democracy scorecard, make a plan to deliver the petition, and tell them why they should support a constitutional amendment and side with the 99%. 

Can you protect our democracy by delivering petitions to your elected officials?

Thanks for all you do.
