When money “equals” speech --

and corporations have constitutional “rights,”

what happens to democracy?


In 2013, Cleveland Heights voters passed, with a 77% “yes” vote, Issue 32 in support of a 28th Constitutional Amendment clearly stating that: 1. Only human beings, not corporate entities, have Constitutional rights; and 2. Since money is not speech, money spent on elections can be regulated.

Issue 32 also established annual public hearings “to examine the impact on our City, our state and our nation of political influence by corporate entities and big money” in elections.

Cleveland Heights City Council will hold its 7th Annual
“Democracy Day” Public Hearing Thursday Jan. 30, 2020 at 7:00 p.m.
Council Chambers, Cleveland Heights City Hall
40 Severance Circle, Cleveland Heights 44118


“Members of the general public will be afforded the opportunity to speak on these matters for up to five minutes per person.” City Council will send letters to our U.S. congressperson and senators summarizing the hearing and calling for their support for the 28th amendment.

Join us to speak or just to listen.
It’s your democracy.
