Corporations are NOT people

[This event is being sponsored by an Indivisible group in La Crosse and seems to be the kick off event of a new group called La Crosse United to Amend. Hope to clarify soon!]

You are invited to attend a presentation by La Crosse United to Amend at 7:00pm on Wednesday, June 21st at the Ho-Chunk Nation Office at 724 Main Street, La Crosse.
George Penn, from Wisconsin United to Amend, will explain our plan to petition the City of La Crosse to put a resolution to referendum on the April 2018 ballot. It is a call for a constitutional amendment that will assert that a corporation is not a person and that money is not speech. This is the first and most important step in the process of removing the damaging effects of big money on politics
Over 100 Wisconsin municipalities have already passed this resolution and we hope to exert enough pressure on the elected officials in the Wisconsin legislature so they too call for this amendment and join the 19 states that have already done so. Local referenda like ours have all passed, with an average of 79% of voters in favor, so we know that people of all political persuasions are frustrated with the moneyed interests drowning out the voices and votes of citizens

La Crosse United to Amend is nonpartisan and we welcome everyone who shares our concerns to join us. Please invite others to attend our meeting.
