BELLINGHAM - A forum on ending excessive corporate influence in elections comes to Bellingham on Wednesday, Sept. 25.
Move To Amend spokeswoman Ashley Sanders will speak at 6 p.m. at Norway Hall, 1419 N. Forest St. The group seeks a constitutional amendment to overturn the 2010 "Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission" decision in the U.S. Supreme Court. The decision allows unlimited campaign contributions from corporations, unions and associations, as long as those contributions don't go directly to candidates.
The Bellingham City Council unanimously approved a resolution in June 2012 endorsing such a constitutional amendment.
This free public talk, titled "Organizing to End Corporate Rule and Get Money Out of Politics," will include question-and-answer and a discussion.
