The idea is simple.  Go to Sacramento and ask for a resolution to end the corrupting influence of money in politics by doing these 3 things;

1. Pass a resolution for a federal constitutional convention to address the issue with an amendment.

2. A voter instruction in the ballot to let everyone in California decide that we need this amendment, the 28th Amendment.

3. Passing the Disclose Act, which is already moving through the legislation in Sacramento.

Hear Kai Newkirk of 99Rise explain it in more detail;

I will walk with them on June 21 (when Dolores Huerta will speak) and 22 when they get to Sacramento.  I'd love to see other Kossacks there too.  

Or maybe you can drop by and walk a mile with them when they get by Stockton.
