The company has made substantial donations to help ensure changes to safety rules were not allowed. It's another reason to get big money out of politics.

Arkema, the company that owns a Texas chemical plant that spewed “noxious” smoke Thursday, successfully lobbied to delay the enactment of plant safety rules — regulations that would've gone into effect five months ago.

This September 17th marks the 230th anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution – a momentous occasion that laid out the foundations of a new government of the people, by the people, and for the people.
Take part in this historic day of celebration and action: sign up to learn how you can make a difference on Constitution Day 2017.
The Constitution’s first three words, We the People, set the tone for our democratic republic, a system that granted freedoms to ...citizens and limitations to those who govern us. Throughout history, we’ve built upon and improved the Constitution in our pursuit of a more perfect union, granting more basic freedoms and protections through 17 amendments in addition to the original ten outlined in the Bill of Rights.
Today we continue that hard-fought process to create a more perfect union by advancing our movement for the 28th Amendment to the Constitution, which would restore equal democratic power back to the people, not big money or corporations.
Ahead of this year’s Constitution Day, we’re gearing up for a major day of action to celebrate this historic anniversary and build undeniable grassroots pressure for the 28th Amendment.
Click here to sign up today to participate in this historic National Day of Action!
In every part of the country and in every level of government, we the people are rising up to win the 28th. On the state and national scale, we’re calling on political candidates to take our pledge in support of getting big money out of politics through a Constitutional amendment. And in local communities, citizen leaders are collecting signatures for ballot initiatives and resolutions as we speak.
On the Constitution’s 230th anniversary, we’re helping citizens like you organize live webinars with American Promise President Jeff Clements, create an impact on social media, write letters to the editor and op-eds to local newspapers, and write or call members of Congress in support of our 28th Amendment pledge program.
There are so many ways you can get involved and support the 28th Amendment on this historic day. To show your interest and find out more, add your name now!

This is the story of Doris Haddock - famously known as "Granny D" - who at the age of 88 set out on a stroll across the United States in support of campaign finance reform. Her journey began on New Year's Day, 1999, and it would take her 14 months to cover over 3200 miles from Los Angeles to Washington D.C., traveling 10 miles a day. She celebrated two birthdays along the way, and helped raise awareness and passage of the "Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act" (the McCain/Feingold ...law). In 2010, the Supreme Court's "Citizens United" ruling overturned portions of this law related to the contributions allowed by corporations and unions.

America is now in trouble again with "Big Money" influencing our elections and corrupting our democracy, which is why we are sponsoring a MA ballot initiative to help return our government to one that is run by people, not money. Let's learn and be inspired by the sprit of this amazing woman, played by Barbara Bates Smith and accompanied by Jeff Sebens, as they tell the story of Granny D through her jorunals and memoirs about the trip.

Sign up to attend and reserve your seats now! All ticket donations will go to support the "People Govern, Not Money" ballot campaign. Thank you! for your generous contribution.
