To: The New Jersey State House and The New Jersey State Senate


We, the undersigned residents of New Jersey, believe the rights protected by the U.S. Constitution are the rights of natural born persons, that corporations are not entitled to these rights, and that therefore the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision must be overturned by a constitutional amendment as supported by our New Jersey legislature through the passage of two resolutions during the upcoming session.

Why is this important?

The country is angry about having the people's voice so minimized. Over 80% of the voters, crossing party lines, disagree with the Supreme Court's Citizens United Decision, its corrupting influence and preferential treatment of big business and the wealthy over ordinary people. Each state MUST send a message to Congress in support of a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United. New Jersey has begun this task through the introduction of SR 47 by Sen. Van Drew, now in committee, and AR 86, also in committee, introduced by Assemblyman Conaway. It is urgent to seize the national momentum NOW, to tell our NJ legislature to pass BOTH resolutions on to Congress and thereby say unequivocally that corporations are not people and money is not speech, hence a constitutional amendment is required.
