WAmend hosts I-1329 info night on Bainbridge Island

WAmend will host a public information night for Initiative 1329 next week in Winslow.

WAmend is a grassroots effort to get an initiative on the Washington state ballot to request an amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Earlier this year, the organization began collecting the 300,000 signatures required to get I-1329 on the November 2014 statewide ballot, and the group faces a deadline of June 25 to gather the needed signatures.

I-1329 would urge Washington’s Congressional delegation to propose amending the Constitution to clarify that constitutional rights apply to natural persons and not corporations, and to authorize greater regulation of political contributions and expenditures.

The information night on Bainbridge Island is from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 20 at Eagle Harbor Congregational Church. Speakers include Fran Korten of Yes! Magazine; Peter Denis, University of Washington; and Dee Eisenhauer, Eagle Harbor Congregational Church.

Eagle Harbor Congregational Church is at 105 Winslow Way.

For more information on the meeting, call Peggi Erickson at 206-842-2232.
