People across the country are reclaiming their democracy by encouraging their local townships to pass resolutions in support of amending the constitution in response to the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United. On Monday, April 4, 2011, a resolution calling for a constitutional amendment was passed at the Annual Town Meeting, in Provincetown, Massachusetts. The resolution will now be sent to the state and federal legislators serving Provincetown, as well as the governor of Massachusetts, urging them to take action at the state level.
