On January 21, 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission that corporations have a First Amendment right to spend as much money as they want to promote or defeat candidates. People across the country are organizing to protest this Supreme Court ruling and are calling for a constitutional amendment that would ensure democracy is for people, not for corporations. We were snowed out on the anniversary, but we will make an impact on February 11! Join us in Annapolis to support a Maryland State Resolution calling for a constitutional amendment!
