KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The "Move To Amend" coalition made a stop in Westport Tuesday on their nationwide tour to protest what members claim are unfair contributions to political campaigns.
The coalition wants a constitutional amendment overturning the Supreme Court's 2010 decision allowing corporations to make anonymous donations to political campaigns.
"This campaign is a new way to spread the message about an amendment that 80 percent of Americans already support," Move to Amend spokesperson Ashley Sanders explained.
"Until our elected officials will listen to us and enact this amendment, we will find ways to reach the American public to let them know that we don't have to accept a corrupt political system," Sanders continued.
The tour began in Los Angeles on October 11 and plans to end up in Gainesville, Florida on December 14.
