Calling upon the United States Congress to defend democracy from the undue influence of corporations by passing and sending to the states for ratification a constitutional amendment which overturns the Supreme Court's ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission and establishes that only human beings, not corporations, are endowed with constitutional rights, and that money is not speech so that regulating political contributions and spending is not equivalent to limiting political speech and calling upon the Pennsylvania General Assembly to adopt a similar resolution.
