Info session upcoming

TROY — Greater Dayton Move to Amend will host an information session from 1:30-2:30 p.m. Feb. 2 at the Troy-Miami County Library, 419 W. Main St., Troy.

Greater Dayton Move to Amend is one of eight Ohio affiliates associated with a coalition of organizations and individuals working to pass an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to make clear that inalienable rights belong to human beings only, and that money is not a form of protected free speech under the First Amendment and can be regulated in political campaigns. Learn more about the movement’s history, goals and strategies from a local volunteer. And find out how you can get involved, from sharing information with friends to lobbying elected representatives and everything in between. The event is free and open to the public.
