NJOCU Petition asking NJ SENATORS to LEAD on Sept.8th CLOTURE VOTE for Constitutional Amendment t...
On September 8th, the US Senate will hold a cloture vote on SJR19, the proposed Democracy for All Amendment to the Constitution, which will allow for the overturn of the totality of Supreme Court decisions that have opened the floodgates for BIG MONEY into our elections. This procedural vote will give the full Senate a chance for an up or down floor vote to follow. PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION thanking Senators Menendez and Booker for their cosponsorship of SJR19 and ASK BOTH TO LEAD by persuading colleagues to also cosponsor, by giving floor speeches on Sept. 8th and by publishing op-eds in support of this amendment.
Why is this important?
There are currently 50 cosponsors of the amendment . Even one more cosponsor will give our movement to get big money out of politics a SENATE MAJORITY. NJOCU (NJ for the Overturn of Citizens United) is a grassroots coalition of 29 statewide organizations that has worked for 3 years to bring a amendment before Congress that will ensure the free and fair elections that our Founding Fathers envisioned. SJR19 enables Congress and the States to regulate campaign financing and to distinguish between artificial entities and actual people. Results of this petition will be sent to your Senators. They will know you want them to LEAD. Your voices will be heard and your comments read. Each of you is needed in the fight to restore our Democracy: to insure government of, by and for the people; not of, by, and for the money.
The September 8th Senate vote is an important first step; stay alert to the next steps, PASS THIS PETITION ALONG TO OTHERS, and go to the our website, www.njocu.org, for updates and information how you can join the NJOCU Coalition.
