About us

We the People – Eugene is a grassroots network of citizens fighting corporate rule in all areas of politics and life. Research,community education, activist training, coalition building and multi-faceted, innovative community outreach are the hallmarks of our approach to social justice in the Eugene Oregon area.

We the People РEugene was founded in 2011 as a nonprofit, independent coalition of individuals and groups responding to the growing devastation caused by growing wealth inequality, corrupt elections, and other adverse results of bad corporate behaviors that seriously harm the public good.

We the People – Eugene was also organized to facilitate a constitutional amendment process to reverse Supreme Court interpretations granting corporations the same constitutional rights as people, including the 2010 Citizens United ruling that allows unlimited corporate spending for or against individuals seeking public office.

We are determined, however, to pursue all alternatives that will eliminate the excessive influence of moneyed interests that now govern our politics, distort our priorities and remove common sense from our domestic and foreign policies

We are a local affiliate of the nation-wide movement Move to Amend.  Please see MovetoAmend.org for more information.
