Free Speech for People Leads Effort to Bar Trump from Ballot Under 14th Amendment Provision

Led by EJS Board Member John Bonifaz, Free Speech For People, a national nonpartisan legal advocacy group, continues to spearhead a nationwide effort to “hold insurrectionists accountable for their role in the violent assault on American democracy” that took place on January 6th, 2021.

Along with the Mi Familia Vota Education Fund, the group launched, a campaign calling on Secretaries of State and top election officials across the country to follow the mandate of Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment and permanently bar Donald Trump–and all other elected officials who participated in the January 6th insurrection–from any future ballot.

FSFP last month filed a legal challenge to bar Donald Trump from appearing on Minnesota’s presidential ballot in 2024.
