California March for Democracy, March 17 - June 22

Hosts, please don't delete this. Not all Californians go to the California forum and this is extremely important as other states, not just California, are starting movements to get a Constitutional Amendment that overturns the Citizen's United ruling. Here's what it's all about:

Citizens United. The most expensive election in U.S. history. McCutcheon. Big money's corruption of our politics is so complete we can no longer deny: democracy is dead in America. Plutocracy has arrived.

The voices of the 99% donít matter now: as long as this is true, our needs wonít count and real change wonít come. From the nationwide "march against corruption" protest, to the statewide New Hampshire Rebellion, to civil disobedience in the chamber of the Supreme Court itself -- more and more Americans are stepping-up to the plate for democracy everyday.

Itís time to take the fight to defend our democracy to a new level. Itís time to move the millions of Americans who believe in the rule of one person, one vote to stand up and say enough.

If we arrive in Sacramento, 37 days later, and our demand has not been met we will occupy the Capitol until it is. No matter what happens, we will force the leaders of Americaís biggest state, one that has been first on so many things, to focus on what must be the First Issue for our nation to solve. A call for change from California will send a message of hope that change is coming across the country. Join us and help turn the tide.

As a first step, we will demand the California legislature take three urgent actions:
1.Issue a formal call for a federal Constitutional Convention to propose an Amendment outlawing big money corruption by passing Assembly Joint Resolution 1 (AJR1)
2.Give California's voters the chance to formally instruct the US Congress to propose such an Amendment and the California legislature to ratify it by passing Senate Bill 1272 (SB1272)
3.Start reigning in unlimited, anonymous big money in elections by passing the DISCLOSE Act to require the top donors to be prominently revealed in every political ad they fund.

We NEED your support. If you live in California, please consider joining us in the March. If you don't live in California, please consider supporting us in other ways OR, consider starting your own movement in your own state. This is vitally important for all of us. Please, GET INVOLVED. Thank you.
