Alaska's Resolutions of Support


  • On November 3, 2020, Alaskans voted 51% to 49% in favor of Ballot Measure No. 2 – 19AKBE. Included among its legislative findings is this call for a constitutional amendment: “These mistaken Supreme Court decisions have invalidated longstanding anti-corruption laws in Alaska. Alaska shall now affirm the rights and powers of its citizens by prohibiting the use of dark money in its candidate elections and by supporting an amendment to the United States Constitution allowing citizens to regulate the raising and spending of money in elections.” (Click here for more information.)

  • On December 18, 2018, the Anchorage Municipal Assembly passed a resolution calling for a constitutional amendment to establish that corporations and other artificial entities do not have constitutional rights, and that money is not speech, and therefore the government can enact statutes and regulations concerning election spending and political decision-making to the end that the people are heard.

  • On September 22, 2014, the Homer City Council passed a resolution calling for a constitutional amendment to abolish corporate personhood and the doctrine of money as speech, and to claim our sovereign right to self-governance.
