Group Description

The Restore Democracy Group aims to lessen
and control the role of money and corporate
power in the political system of the United States.
We are a member of OWS in New York under our new name --
Corporations are not People and Money is not Speech.

This is what how we describe ourselves in our NYCGA page:

Our goal is to act to

overturn the Supreme Court Citizens United
decision that affirmed that corporations are
people – via a constitutional amendment;

and to

overturn the Supreme Court Buckley v Valeo
decision that affirmed that money is free speech –
via a constitutional amendment.

WE ARE THE 83% ……

The OWS Declaration states “a democratic government
derives its just power from the people, not from corporations”
and the ABC News/Washington Post poll found 83% of
Americans oppose CU.

We work with our sister "End Corporate Personhood" sub-group
of OWS's "Politics and Electoral Reform" working group --
http://www.nycga.net/groups/political-and-electoral-reform/ .
While we are focused on amendments to the federal constitution,
these groups are more broadly oriented.

Significantly off topic posts to this forum should be avoided.
