letter to the editor
The Plain Dealer, Cleveland / Sunday, November 25, 2012
From Massachusetts to Oregon, Colorado to Illinois, and California to Ohio, citizens throughout the country voted overwhelmingly on Nov. 6 for their legislators to pass a constitutional amendment to overturn the U.S. Supreme Court's Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission ruling and declare that only human beings -- not corporations -- are entitled to constitutional rights and that money is not speech and campaign spending can be regulated.
Residents in more than 150 cities, including Brecksville and Newburgh Heights here in Northeast Ohio, had the opportunity to vote on measures calling for an end to the doctrines of corporate constitutional rights and money as free speech. Every single one passed.
More council resolutions, ordinances and initiatives across Ohio are planned in 2013. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

The Northeast Ohio American Friends
Service Committee is a Quaker social action organization that educates,
advocates and organizes on concerns of justice, peace, sustainability
and democracy. The Akron office is home to two programs,
the Wage Peace/Anti-War Program and the Economic Justice and Empowerment Program.
In addition, since 9/11 the Northeast Ohio AFSC has actively promoted peace, justice, and civil
liberties through community forums, rallies, marches, and vigils.
In mid-July 2005, the Northeast
Ohio office of AFSC joined with Dayton's AFSC to bring Eyes
Wide Open Ohio to communities throughout Ohio. This new exhibit,
modeled after the National
Eyes Wide Open Exhibit, presents a portion of the true impact of
war on Ohioans. In the summer of 2007, AFSC produced a new exhibit--The Cost of War--a series of banners detailing the social trade-offs of 1 day's cost of the Iraq war.
