On January 6, 2021, former President Donald Trump incited hundreds of violent insurrectionists to storm the Capitol in an effort to overturn the results of the 2020 election, and other elected officials aided or gave comfort to the insurrectionists. As a result, five people died and more than 140 officers were injured in a seditious attack that shook our democracy to its core. Now, Trump is preparing to run for president again in 2024, holding rallies throughout the summer of 2021 to activate his base.

However, Trump’s incitement of the January 6th insurrection makes him ineligible for any future run for office.

Initially enacted in the wake of the Civil War, Section 3 of the 14th Amendment disqualifies from public office any individual who has taken an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution and then engages in insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or gives aid or comfort to those who have. By inciting a violent attack on Congress in an effort to prevent the certification of his own electoral defeat, Donald Trump engaged in insurrection and violated his oath of office.

Free Speech For People is now urging Secretaries of State and chief election officials across the country to follow the mandate of Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment and bar insurrectionists from any future ballot.

SIGN THE PETITION: Ban insurrectionists from the ballot for violating Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.
