Where: Huston-Tillotson Univ. Austin

Move to Amend, the national campaign to abolish Corporate Personhood, will convene a Regional Grassroots Democracy Convergence in Austin, Texas, October 11-13. The weekend event will feature educational workshops and networking activities for democracy activists from around the state.

Attend workshops on movement building, organizing skills, strategy development, and capacity building. Session topics include "The State of the Global & US Democracy Movement" and "Building a Multi-Racial Democracy Movement for Social Justice and Constitutional Renewal," among others.

Move to Amend National Director Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap said "The movement against corporate rule has grown exponentially in the last year. To continue to be effective and win real victories in the future it is vital that we engage in both skill-building and community building - that's what the convergence is all about."

Rally to Get Money out of Politics


by: Roachey

Tue Jan 08, 2013 at 11:07 AM CST

On Jan 19 from 1 to 4pm, Grassroots organizers and activists from across Texas will take to the South Steps of the Texas State Capitol to mark the third anniversary of the Supreme Court's decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, and rally in support of two concurrent Texas resolutions before the 83rd Legislature calling for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to establish that political expenditures are not protected speech under the First Amendment, and only natural persons are protected by constitutional rights. Let's get together and get something done about this issue.
