Guest: Delores Whitman
Delores Whitman is a retired children’s librarian and organizer for Occupy Defiance since 2011. When Occupy Defiance joined Move To Amend in 2012, her group went door-to-door collecting 866 signatures for a 2013 ballot resolution calling for a constitutional amendment to Citizens United. They were able to go door-to-door, send letters to the editor, host a public forum, speak to the City Council, and went on community TV reminding people to get out and vote for the resolution. Their ballot campaign succeeded in passing the resolution (1807 to 902).
Guest: Carla Rautenberg
After years of working on issues such as single-payer national healthcare and campaign finance reform, Carla Rautenberg joined many others in realizing that to achieve a true democracy, we must strip corporations of never-intended constitutional rights and overturn the mistaken doctrine of money as speech. She sees the Move to Amend as providing a uniquely non-partisan approach to restoring all of our rights under the constitution to human beings.
