**Welcome to PassMassAmendment**

We are a network of people intent on using Massachusetts law to make sure government serves the people!
PETITIONING will be starting again this fall! Our legislative billswill be resubmitted as soon as the next session ends, so stay tuned on that!

And please join in our petitioning effort, and gather signatures! We have til mid-November to gather signatures to either get on the ballot (if we get enough!), and even if we don't, the signatures help pressure legislators in your district. Click here to GET PETITION FORMS!

What we're doing:

Statehouse bills and statewide ballot initiative petitions (and associated court actions) to get Big Money out of our elections:

- Amend the Mass. Constitution, based on “Corporations Are Not People, Money Is Not Speech”
- Disclose dark money
- Reduce out of state money

We just filed our 2017 petitions with the state based on our Statehouse Bills. We will receive the printed official petition forms first week of September. Stay tuned!

Every signature we get, it helps pressure lawmakers to advance these bills!

Why amend the Massachusetts Constitution

We feel like we have no other option. We've asked our legislators to do something to get Big Money OUT of our elections, and they have not acted.

WE NEED YOU! If we're going to be THE PEOPLE,we gotta stand up and BE the people!
Get on our email list for updates!


Please get involved!

We meet every 2nd Saturday at 1:30 pm @ Democracy Center, 45 Mt Auburn, Cambridge (EXCEPT for September to November, we do not hold meetings during petitioning time).

"Article VII. Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity and happiness of the people; and not for the profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men: Therefore the people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government; and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity and happiness require it."
