Join the fight against Citizens United and reverse the growing influence of big money in politics. Because the U.S. Congress has been unable to act, state legislatures across the country are taking action under Article V of the US Constitution. We are supporting legislation in the Maryland General Assembly to affirm that Congress and the states may regulate raising and spending money in elections, reserve Constitutional rights to human beings, and affirm every citizen’s right to vote.
1. Call Senator Reilly 410-841-3568 and ask him to support the Democracy Amendment Resolution in the 2018 session of the Maryland General Assembly (SJ 7). This resolution strengthens the power of individual citizens and reduces the disproportionate influence of money in the political process at all levels of government.
