Join Kathleen in the Fight Against Money in Politics
Get Shorewood and Whitefish Bay into the Movement
Kathleen Briggs comes from a family that believes in America. Her father stepped up during World War II to help protect the kind of democracy she is fighting to preserve today.
“He taught us just how great this country can be.”
And with a wealthy few looking to buy our elections, “this is not the kind of country our founding father’s envisioned.”A long time Wisconsin resident, Kathleen has worked in Whitefish Bay to gather signatures on so a resolution on the ballot calling for a Constitutional amendment affirming that in our democracy, that money is not speech and that human beings, not corporations, are persons entitled to constitutional rights.According to Kathleen, “the government is our government and it provides a balance of power against a plutocracy that is trying to buy candidates and control our lives.”
Kathleen and you stand between this small yet excessively influential minority from owning our government. This summer, we are looking to have Shorewood and Whitefish Bay join a growing number of Wisconsin communities and states across this country in pushing for this amendment.
We cannot be the land of the free if corporations are buying our elections.
Here's how you can join Kathleen
In one community at at time across this country citizens are bring to their local ballots a vote for an amendment declaring corporations are not people and money is not speech. Shorewood and Whitefish Bay are joining this Move to Amend movement.
