Tired of big donors and special interests calling the shots?

Join us in supporting HR 440
to call for a 28th Amendment to the Constitution!
 

Pennsylvania is slated to have one of the most expensive election years coming up in 2018. This is the new normal in the post Citizens United world, but with your help we can end the domination of big money in our elections with a nationwide movement for political equality. HR 440 will call for a 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Representative Frank Dermody (D-33) has introduced HR 440 in the PA state legislature, a resolution urging Congress to propose an amendment to the United States Constitution “clarifying the distinction between the rights of natural persons and the rights of corporations and other legal entities under the First Amendment and giving Congress and state legislatures the power to regulate political contributions and expenditures.” Rep. Dermody is joined by 26 others representatives who support the resolution.

Please join Jeff Clements of American Promise, author Judy Wicks, and Ben Cohen of Stamp Stampede in support of HR 440!
