WE, THE PEOPLE...
WERE GIVEN CERTAIN CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS.

SPECIAL GUEST: JOHN A. SMITH
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA ORGANIZER
FOR COMMON CAUSE

For more info on meetings, call Sue Dearing at 855-6965.
*Petition from Move to Amend: “We, the People of the United States of America, reject the U.S. Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling, and move to amend our Constitution to firmly establish that money is not speech, and that human beings, not corporations, are persons entitled to constitutional rights.”
