On Friday Jan. 20, the Coffee Party is joining Move to Amend and democracy advocates across the US to hold more than 80 rallies in front of federal court buildings, including the US Supreme Court. These rallies will launch grassroots campaigns for ballot initiatives and resolutions rejecting the “Citizens United” decree for unlimited, anonymous spending to influence our elections.
Momentum has been building in recent months, with resolutions passed by city councils in Los Angeles and New York City, and the Montana Supreme Court asserting that states have the right to prevent the corporate purchase of their governments. Let’s make this happen in states, towns, and cities across the country.
Here are some actions you can take:
I’ll be at the Washington DC event, at the US Supreme Court Building at noon on Friday Jan. 20, along with Coffee Party leaders Annabel Park and Will Rice, radio talk show host Thom Hartmann, and Move To Amend national spokesman David Cobb.
At last, the American people are beginning to focus on restricting corporate influence on our elections, our government, and the policies that impact our lives. Now is our chance to seize the upper hand.
PS: Our new Board of Directors wants to build upon last year’s accomplishments, and to do that we’ll need your support. Please take advantage of our “Class of 2012” Membership Drive by renewing your membership or becoming a new member by Jan. 31.
