Hi all,
Here is the link to a wonderful blog written by our colleague, Mike Deal, which highlights the need for grassroots activism in forcing constitutional change which leads to democratic reforms. It makes the link to the power of corporations in Supreme Court rulings over the years and culminates in a call for an amendment to overturn Citizens United. It is hosted on his Democracy4change website and it would be great, if possible, to put it on your Facebook pages.  Congratulations, Mike, very compelling and informative.
