We the People Massachusetts is not committed to particular language for the U.S. Constitutional Amendment, but it must contain the two principles cited in our mission statement: that

[C]orporations have no consciences, no beliefs, no feelings, no thoughts, no desires. Corporations help structure and facilitate the activities of human beings, to be sure, and their ‘personhood’ often serves as a useful legal fiction. But they are not themselves members of ‘We the People’ by whom and for whom our Constitution was established.

— Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, 2010, dissenting in Citizens United v. FEC
  • 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.

There are several versions of this amendment, but we currently prefer the language contained in the We the People Amendment, promoted by Move to Amend.
