Getting Corporate Money Out of Politics
Jan 28, 2013
Chicago CWAers and other activists call for a Constitutional amendment to establish that money is not speech and corporations are not people.
Below: Progressives rallied in 33 states against the Supreme Court's Citizens United decisions.
CWAers and progressive activists across the country marked the third anniversary of the disastrous Supreme Court Citizen's United decision with nationwide actions over the Martin Luther King weekend protesting the billions of dollars that have subverted our political process.
"Money Out/Voters In" was the theme of the actions held in 33 states. CWA is part of a broad coalition that rejects the Supreme Court's decisions that have permitted corporate and secret political spending to harm our nation's democratic election process. We support amending the U.S. Constitution to firmly establish that money is not speech and that corporations are not people and not entitled to constitutional rights.
CWA and progressive allies are determined to break down the barriers to democracy that are blocking progress on the issues that working families care about.
