ACTION 1
Constitutional Amendment to Counter Citizens United - "Get the Dough out of Politics" - From Ben & Jerry's!
 
At Ben & Jerry?s, we know dough belongs in ice cream, not in politics.

But crazy big money is pouring into the 2012 elections,drowning out the voices of regular people.

And the U.S. Supreme Court has even ruled that corporations can spend UNLIMITED money to support or oppose candidates for public office.

Hey, we?re a company ? but that?s a terrible idea! Democracy is for people.

We think it?s time to Get the Dough Out of Politics and make our elected leaders accountable to the people once again. We?ll be traveling all over the country and the Interwebs this year to spread the word.

No matter how you vote ? right-wing, left wing, wing-nut, or nut-free - please join us in the growing national movement to Get the Dough Out of Politics. It really matters!

Come visit us at GettheDoughOut.org to learn more and take action today
 

 
ACTION 2
Tell your state legislators: Stand with us, not with ALEC!
 
ALEC, funded by a long list of America's largest corporations has funded voter ID, "Stand Your Ground" and many other extreme right wing causes.

Thanks to the voices of constituents, ALEC, their corporate backers, and their legislator members are in retreat.

A dozen corporations have pulled support from the controversial group after learning more about their true mission, and ALEC recently announced the elimination of a corporate-legislator "task force"
