Mission Statement

“Jackson County Move to Amend is a coalition of concerned citizens committed to an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to state unequivocally that inalienable rights belong to human beings only, and that money is not a form of protected free speech under the First Amendment. Money, we argue, can and should be regulated in political campaigns.”  The ideology of Move To Amend as expressed in MEMO FROM MOVE TO AMEND COALITION TO NONGOVERNMENT ORGANIZATIONS (NGOs) INVOLVED IN EFFORTS TO AMEND THE US CONSTITUTION.
Disclosure: Please note that your information will be entered into the MTA database when you sign the MTA petition. Also note the dual mission of Move To Amend: “Move to Amend has two central goals as an organization: first, to amend the Constitution to say that corporations aren’t people and money isn’t speech; and second, to create genuine, justice-driven, participatory democracy in the United States.” MTA requires that those groups applying for affiliation need to commit to the national organization’s Statement of Values, which includes ending oppression, especially racial oppression.
