Stamping Money Out of Politics at the Unitarian Universalist General Assembly

Looking for inspiration in dark times? Stamper UUCU attended the Unitarian Universalist General Assembly last weekend in Kansas City, he brought stamping stations and thousands of dollars in stamped $1 bills to make change with vendors.  Dozens of vendors stepped up and helped to spread the message and build demand for a constitutional amendment to end the influence of big money in politics.

Change distributed at the UU General Assembly in June 2018

Here’s a message from UUCU on why he stamps: 

I am a member of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Urbana/Campaign Illinois. We share 7 principals. The First and Fifth call me to work to “Stamp $$$ Out of Politics!”.  Money has corrupted our Federal, State and local governments!  CITIZENS UNITED must be reversed by a constitutional amendment.  Giving the 1% the ability to control government was not intended by our founders!

1st Principle: The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
2nd Principle: Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
3rd Principle: Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
4th Principle: A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
5th Principle: The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
6th Principle: The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
7th Principle: Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

At the Stampede, we’re endlessly impressed and inspired by the tens of thousands of volunteers who are doing what they can to build this movement to fix our democracy.  Thank you!
