Democracy Center, 45 Mt Auburn St, Cambridge

“Big Money” in politics hurts our communities and small business.
Corporate dominance of Government and the political process is
placing undue burdens on the people.

Getting the signatures puts the question in front of the legislature.
If 25% of the legislators, in 2 consecutive sessions vote to put the
language on the ballot, the question goes to the people. It would be
the first constitutional amendment driven by ballot initiative in
decades.  Last year, the Legislature passed a resolution almost  
unanimously
consenting to the concept, but have done nothing to make it law.
We believe that if the question is put to them, that they will be
forced by their constituencies to vote for the amendment.

We've waited long enough...

Let's take back our democracy from big business!

Again, it starts in Massachusetts!
Join the Battle of our Age!

See you there!

If you want to get on the list for future announcements, please let us
know...
