Arizona Barnstorming Tour with Ashley Sanders
Move to Amend is barnstorming through Arizona and
we're coming to a town near you! Catch a talk in your area, and learn
how you can get involved in the campaign to end corporate personhood and
demand real democracy!
Ashley Sanders is touring Arizona 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 285,000 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.
