Help the fight against corruption in South Dakota!

If you've been following RepresentUs for a while, you likely know the saga of IM-22, the first statewide anti-corruption act to win at the ballot back in 2016. IM-22 protected South Dakota from corruption by banning foreign money from South Dakota elections, preventing politicians using public office for personal gain, and stopping lobbyists from giving gifts to politicians. Just months after it passed, legislators in South Dakota repealed it all.

The people of South Dakota fought back by collecting signatures for a constitutional amendment, Amendment W. If passed, it will crack down on corruption and it will permanently stop politicians from overturning voter-passed laws. For more info, check out the campaign's website here.

The campaign has now entered an incredibly critical time. Early voting has started in South Dakota, and the opposition, a coalition of lobbyists who benefit from status quo, are ramping up their efforts fight the measure. Voters in South Dakota need to hear from volunteers like you to know about the campaign and vote for Amendment W.

Come join our chapter volunteers to call into corruption together!

BYOL--Bring Your Own Laptop! (if possible)

We’ll be using Town Square, the official RepresentUs Discord server. Feel free to jump on now to ask questions, familiarize yourself with the tools, or even just to say “hi.”

On Thursday, jump right onto Town Square, and RepresentUs organizers will train you on the script and the call tool.

If you can't make it to La Grange, you can make calls from wherever you are.
