Join I-735 movement

We are volunteer signature gatherers for Initiative 735 to get big money out of elections. We are modern-day freedom fighters, engaging in grass-roots political action to reclaim democracy for all Americans. We are calling to reverse corporate personhood and money as political speech. We are calling for a constitutional amendment to clarify that it should be living, breathing people that are entitled to the rights granted under the Constitution.

You may see us in the distance and make a beeline to sign our petition, with intense relief and hope that meaningful change is happening. Or you may have already given up on our political system and feel the effort is useless. We volunteer our time either way.

You may stop, sign and learn all about the issue, or you may not feel that you have time. But we are out there anyway, for we know the cost to Americans if we are silent.

We are not going to remain silent while our First Amendment rights are being used to buy our elections. We are not going to remain silent while our Fourth Amendment rights are being used to harm our environment.

Sign I-735 and join the movement.
