Move to Amend Day of Action in Neenah
Saturday, May 24, 9:00AM – 5PM
Neenah Move to Amend (MTA) is calling for a Final Day of Action on Saturday, May 24, 9:00AM - 5PM to help Neenah meet their goal of 1800 signatures (15% = 1395 + cushion) to get our resolution on the November 4 ballot.
Please commit to volunteering as few or as many hours as you can; hours are flexible! We still need at least 200 signatures to cross the required 15% threshold!
Volunteers will be door knocking and manning stationary locations in Neenah. We will use the Neenah Public Library as its home base location for supplies, petition collection, and areas to cover.
Where: Neenah Public Library, 240 E. Wisconsin Avenue, Neenah
Please provide your 1) contact information; 2) availability for circulation; 3) if you will door knock or stand in a public spot; and 4) if you will bring a buddy, or need/want one.
Mark your calendars today!
*If you want to help, but can’t this Saturday, please email Katie or Jen with your alternative availability. Neenah MTA volunteers are collecting signatures every day through Monday, May 26. MTA plans to file their petition on May 29.
City of Neenah Resolution:
Whereas, the Supreme Court’s decisions in Citizens United v. Federal Elections Commission and related case law allows unlimited political campaign spending to influence local, state, and federal elections;
BE IT RESOLVED, that “We the People” of the City of Neenah call for reclaiming democracy from the expansion of corporate personhood rights and the corrupting influence of unregulated political contributions and spending. We stand with the Move to Amend campaign and communities across the country supporting passage of an amendment to the United States Constitution stating:
1. Only human beings - not corporations, limited liability companies, unions, nonprofit organizations, or similar associations - are endowed with constitutional rights; and
2. Money is not speech, and therefore regulating political contributions and spending is not equivalent to limiting political speech.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that we hereby instruct our state and federal representatives to enact resolutions and legislation to advance this effort.”
