Move to Amend Rally, Tuesday, Jan 22nd, Augusta.
Maine Citizens for Clean Elections
is organizing the Maine portion of the nation-wide event.
Come to Augusta and join Citizens Unite Against Citizens United!
MCCE and citizens from all over Maine will come together to mark the anniversary of the notorious Citizens United ruling and call for a U.S. Constitutional Amendment on Campaign Finance. This is your chance to fight back against damaging decisions that have weakened campaign finance laws, unleashed a flood of corporate money into our elections, and raised the voices of the wealthy at the expense of everyone else.
Who: You! And a diverse group of Maine people
What: A rally against Citizens United
Where: Maine State House Welcome Center
When: Tuesday, January 22nd at 10:30 a.m.
Maine citizens have embraced the idea of a constitutional amendment, successfully organizing to pass resolutions in towns large and small. Nation-wide, nine states have already passed resolutions in support. Let’s make Maine the tenth!
Citizens United is the 2010 case in which the U. S. Supreme Court's decision freed unions, corporations and wealthy individuals to spend unlimited sums on campaign advertising, and compromises the integrity of campaigns for federal office.
