Start a 28ers group in your community. Host an event every 28th of the month to ‘ring the bell’ for a 28th constitutional amendment to get money out of politics. Our hope is to build an informed broad bass of support all over the United States who, when we do get an amendment, will be able to get the states to ratify it. We also want to use these events to build relationships with other community groups. Money in politics intersects with many other issues. The process of getting legislative change for any issue has become a policy auction. This situation creates an opportunity for us to build relationships with groups, learn more detail on issues within our communities and support each others work.
