As a part of Together Frankfort's 2017 Summer Study of Dark Money, we contacted organizations which had been working on this issue. Together Frankfort invited the community to “Money in Politics, The Citizens United Decision – What Do We Do Now?” Thursday,United Bank, 125 West Main St., Frankfort. Representatives from three national organizations – American Promise, Move to Amend, and Wolf-PAC, described their work for a U.S. constitutional amendment, to state that corporations are not people, to establish limits on campaign donations, and to require disclosure for contributions.
