Dear Supporters and Trackers of the Ecology Democracy Network,

Move to Amend Lobby Day, 11AM
At the State Capitol Great Hall, below the governor's office, west side of the building
WHAT: an energizing rally to support of the We the People Act when it is voted on in the House/Senate. If you can't come to St. Paul:
Call or e-mail your legislators by April 25th and ask them to support the We the People Act. Contact info for your legislator: http://www.gis.leg.mn/OpenLayers/districts/
Invite family and friends! This is a heavy lift! We need all hands on deck.
Sample language for your call/e-mail:
Dear Representative/Senator __________________,
As your constituent, I urge you to vote in favor of the We the People Act [SF 17/HF 276] that calls on Congress to amend the U.S. Constitution to establish that money is NOT speech and that corporations are not entitled to constitutional rights.
This will be an important step to restore democracy to the people.
Thanks for your support!
