Ashley Sanders of Move to Amend Speaking in Tucson, May 26

Are you tired of corporations running our elections with dark money donations? Join the Move to Amend movement!

On Sunday, May 26, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson will host a Move to Amend presentation by activist Ashley Sanders. 

Here is the background from the national Move to Amend website...

Ashley Sanders is touring the country for Move to Amend in an effort to build connections, inspire activism, and reveal the origins of corporate power in America.

Ashley Sanders is a long-time community activist from Salt Lake City, Utah. She began political work doing campus organizing against the Bush administration and then worked to build third parties as the Nader spokesperson in 2008. She worked for Democracy Unlimited (a Move to Amend Founding Organization) in 2009 and helped to form the Move to Amend coalition. She founded the Salt Lake affiliate of Move to Amend and serves on the National Leadership Team.

Move to Amend is a national coalition of over 280,000 people and organizations whose goal is to amend the US Constitution to end corporate rule and get money out of politics.

Sanders tells the history of the American Constitution as it pertains to Corporate Personhood and illegitimate but legal corporate constitutional rights, followed by facilitated discussion/Q and A. "Organizing to End Corporate Rule & Get Money Out of Politics" aims to help local folks understand how they can work to abolish corporate personhood and establish a government of, by, and for the people.

This event is free and open to the general public, donations appreciated, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. The UU church is located at 4831 E. 22nd St. in Tucson.
