Amend Law LLC
Molly P. Matter, Esq.
A community lawyering practice focused on human rights and voting rights. Through education, civic engagement and litigation, Amend Law LLC seeks to amend the law so that law is in service of the people, not people in service of the law. Accordingly, elected officials derive their power to govern from the consent of the people, from all human inhabitants within the borders of the United States.
We, the people’—not we, the white people—not we, the citizens, or the legal voters—not we, the privileged class, and excluding all other classes but we, the people . . . the men and women, the human inhabitants of the United States, do ordain and establish this Constitution.
Frederick Douglass, Speech on the Dred Scott Decision (May 1857)
If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let's work together. Lilla Watson
