When the Supreme Court decided for corporations in theCitizens United v. FEC case, it elevated knowledge of the doctrine of "corporate personhood" to new heights. Hundreds of thousands of people now know what those words mean.

But as awful as Citizens United is, corporate personhood wasn't created with that case. Corporate Personhood was concocted by corporate lawyers 127 years ago.

On May 10, 1886 in the Santa Clara v. Southern Pacific Railroad case, the Court is said to have given corporations their first foothold in the Constitution.

In the case, corporations argued they are protected under the 14th amendment — the amendment passed to ensure equal protection of African Americans after slavery was abolished. Since then, there has beencase after case in which the Court expanded the Constitutional "rights" of corporations.

This year and last Move to Amend volunteers held protests on the anniversary of Citizens United. But as you know, Move to Amend is about going to the root of the problem, not just that one case. Our We the People Amendment will not only overturn Citizens United, it will get corporations out of the Constitution altogether, and make clear that money is not free speech.

This year, on the 127th "birthday" of corporate persons, Move to Amend activists will be displaying freeway banners all over the nation.
