I join the overwhelming majority of Americans to demand an amendment to the United States Constitution to end the domination of big money in politics and give voice to all Americans.
I will stand with all Americans, without regard to party or other differences, and urge all candidates and elected officials to do the same, in order to pass and ratify such a constitutional amendment as soon as possible.

“The threat that underlies everything else is the takeover of our political system by concentrated wealth and power,” says Clements. “And the only way to get it back is a Constitutional amendment because the Supreme Court in the Citizens United decision made the catastrophic mistake of saying ‘that’s just free speech.'”

Americans of all political stripes agree we must end the corruption of our democracy. Across the country, people are stepping up, leading by example, and showing what it means to be true patriots.

Join fellow citizen leaders in this historic effort!
