In recent years, the Supreme Court has increasingly interpreted the First Amendment to equate corporate, union and individual spending in elections with free speech under the Constitution, and co-mingled the rights of natural persons and privileges for corporations, bringing destabilizing concentrations of money into our political system and other consequences.

Can we protect free speech for human beings and keep the promise of a healthy and representative democracy? Can a 28th Amendment secure and renew republican democracy in America? How will you participate?

Join us for this important conversation and opportunity to learn more and participate in the fast-growing, cross-partisan work of a 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution.
