As the total spent on elections in our country spins wildly out of control, more and more of us are committing to doing something about the corruption of our political system.The Stamp Stampede is hosting an all day vigil in and around Union Square. Join us as we raise awareness about efforts underway to overturn Citizen’s United and pass a Constitutional Amendment to #GetMoneyOut.
We’re inviting ALL our allies and friends! Please come for five minutes or five hours, stamp at least one dollar bill and get some free ice cream!
WHAT IS THIS “STAMPATHON”?
We are literally ‘stamping’ messages on dollar bills (and fives, and twenties) that educate the public about the problem of money in politics. Like most others, we think a constitutional amendment is needed to overturn Citizen’s United.
Our stamps read ‘Stamp Money Out of Politics’ and ‘The System Isn’t Broken, It’s Fixed’ along with website addresses and hashtags. If enough of us get to stamping money – we’ll reach everyone in the country, many times over.
This ‘Stampathon’ is a 12-hour effort to get the word out about the issue – and about our innovative tactic of using money to get the money out of politics.
Please join us – and invite all your friends!
