The Amendment

Free Speech For People supports the Democracy For All Amendment, which includes the Senate amendment bill and the House amendment bill (H.J.Res.31, 116th Congress). The Democracy For All Amendment ends the big money dominance of our elections and allows for Congress and the States to set overall limits on campaign spending, including prohibitions on corporate and union spending in the political process (as existed prior to the Supreme Court’s ruling in Citizens United v. FEC). The amendment overturns Citizens United and other Supreme Court rulings which have so threatened our democracy.

 We also support the People’s Rights Amendment, which overturns the fabricated doctrine of corporate constitutional rights and restores the promise of American self-government: of, by, and for the people.

For background on why we need an amendment and how to achieve one, see Fixing the Supreme Court’s Mistake: The Case for the Twenty-Eighth Amendment.
