These two groups are seasoned political advocacy stalwarts and worth checking out. Public Citizen has been around since 1971. Free Speech for People was founded on the day of the Citizens United decision in 2010.
Treating corporations as though they have First Amendment rights is affecting all areas of our lives. March with us on the 4th of July as we parade our mascot Octi and expound on the tentacles of deceit. Or host a House Party that can be organized around one of two themes, education or the economy.
Ask your candidates questions. Does she or he think corporations should enjoy first amendment rights meant for people? Do they believe money is the equivalent of free speech? Does your candidate support the passage of a 28th amendment to reverse the 2010 Citizens United decision?
