Support the We the People Amendment,

and we just might get to find out.

 


Recent Supreme Court rulings mean that today our government is controlled by powerful special interests, including global corporations and the very wealthy, instead of all the people.

We must take it back.

We the People Massachusetts supports a U.S. constitutional amendment to reaffirm that:

 

  • The rights protected by the Constitution of the United States are the rights of individual human beings only, and

  • Money spent to influence elections is not protected free speech and may be regulated to ensure equal access to the political process for all Americans.

 


“I hope we shall...crush in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations, which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and to bid defiance to the laws of our country.” — Thomas Jefferson, 1816

Welcome to the website of We the People Massachusetts, a non-partisan, all-volunteer network of citizens dedicated to the cause of democracy.  

We've been active nationally in developing educational materials like the Fixing our Broken Democracy workshop and organizing ballot initiatives in 2012 and 2014.

Here in Massachusetts, we are partnered with other organizations to promote passage of the state legislation, the We the People Act.


This presentation was developed by We the People Massachusetts (formerly Greater Boston Move to Amend) and is delivered in this video by Paul Lauenstein of the South Suburbs Democracy Club.  It's also available as a free interactive workshop for your church, community group, house party, etc.  Use the Contact Us page to set up a workshop near you!
