Keyan Bliss is Move to Amend’s Grassroots Volunteer Coordinator. He currently serves on the Media & Communications, Grassroots Movement, and Political Organizing Committees.

Inspired to join Move to Amend by his brother’s participation within the Occupy movement and student power movement, Keyan first joined Move to Amend in 2013 as an Intern. Since joining, he has served as executive producer of Move to Amend’s online radio program Move to Amend Reports, served on Move to Amend’s National Board of Directors before joining the full-time staff, and helped produce their monthly live-streaming program the Move to Amend Live Report. When he’s not providing support for Move to Amend affiliate leaders, he is actively involved in fighting for racial justice and equity within his local community.

Keyan is a graduate of Indiana University with a B.A. in political science. Keyan views the goal of ending corporate constitutional rights and money as protected speech to be a crucial first step towards leveling the playing field for all justice movements and creating lasting systemic change within US society. Once the “We the People” Amendment is adopted into the Constitution, he hopes to continue constitutional revisions to include a new bill of rights that expand the protection of civil liberties to all human beings without distinction.

  • People's Movement Assembly for Envisioning a Democracy Movement

    120 min | Altar of Air

    Democracy begins at the community level, and it requires intentionality to create inclusive spaces that bring together as many voices to the conversation. The more diverse the participants, the richer the experience. Since 2010, Move to Amend has facilitated dozens of Peoples’ Movement Assemblies as a mechanism to promote democratic dialogue and deliberative problem solving for democratizing the US Constitution. PMAs will help participants to develop a shared analysis of the current crises we face, create a shared vision of the world we want to build, and collaborate strategically across social movements and fronts of struggle towards coordinated action. These incredibly powerful and unique experiences include a process for distributing the synthesized information and following through on the commitments decided among all participants and organizations involved.
