Corporations are not People. Money is not Speech.
UPDATE – PMA Files INITATIVE PETITION to the Office of MA Attorney General
PMA has, once again, filed a statewide ballot initiative to the Commonwealth for this year’s petitioning period which begins mid-September and extends for 9 weeks, until mid-November. PMA needs ALL HANDS ON DECK to collect and submit the required number of certified voter signatures on the petition from all over this commonwealth, in order to challenge money in politics and corporate infringement on individual rights.

IT IS HIGH TIME to
“GET BIG MONEY OUT of POLITICS”
We’ve heard Bernie say it, the Donald say it, Jill say it, and Hillary say it!
NOW MASSACHUSETTS MUST TAKE ACTION THAT LEADS TO REAL CHANGE!
We know that YOUare as passionate about getting BIG MONEY OUT of POLITICS as we are; and NOW, we are asking YOU: showyour passion and join the effort!HELP PMA this September, October, and November! PassMassAmendment (AT) gmail.com
PassMassAmendment is working to amend clarify the Massachusetts Constitution based on “Corporations are not People, Money is not Speech”. We consider our effort as a start in the process of getting the corrupting influence of corporations and big money out of the political process to restore a system in which the People’s voices are heard and acted upon.
PassMassAmendment has a two pronged approach. 2016 will be the fourth year of our both promoting a statewide ballot initiative (for which the number of signatures gathered has increased by 50% each year) and concurrently advocating for two legislative bills in the MA State House (which are based on PMA’s petition language.)
PassMassAmendment considers each petition signature gathered for the citizen ballot initiative to put added pressure on the State House to move forward on either a citizen or legislative Amendment to the State Constitution. Sign up to help – PassMassAmendment (AT) gmail.com
