Mary Laan, Milwaukee

As the long-time leader of Move to Amend of Southeastern Wisconsin, Mary Laan continues to have a tireless passion about getting money out of politics.  As a physician assistant, she is also especially concerned about women's access to health care, among other issues.  She is fluent in Spanish and has worked with migrants.  On a daily basis, Mary lives out her principles of social justice and sees the fact that a corporation is not a person as a social justice issue! People who know Mary see her as down-to-earth and approachable, with compassion for all.

    “Mary has been a tireless advocate for MTA (Move to Amend — the constitution) in SE Wisconsin. MTA in a national organization that argues persuasively that to fix our broken electoral system, the constitution should be amended by two provisions: 1) That money is not speech (even timid politicians will advocate for this provision) and 2) That corporations are not people (thus, not entitled to protection of our constitution). Mary is a wonderful example of a person who exhibits Citizen Action leadership.”

    I am also nominating Mary Laan for the Citizen Action award. Mary is very dedicated. She spends a lot of time promoting the C.A. causes.
