Portland "stands up to Citizens United," builds Move to Amend group

The Portland Alliance for Democracy chapter held a community forum on Tuesday, January 25th titled "Standing Up to Citizen United." AfD-Portland was joined by co-sponsors Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, the Oregon Working Families Party, the Oregon Progressive Party and the Oregon Independent Party in developing the panel discussion and follow up Q & A period. The panel consisted of Barbara Dudley, former head of the National Lawyers Guild, Dan Meek, citizen activist attorney who wrote two ballot measures to limit campaign contributions and limitations, and Jon Bartholomew, Policy Advocate with OSPIRG. The crowd was actively involved in the discussion which followed and many signed up for the AfD sponsored Move to Amend group which has formed in Portland.
