Thursday, September 4 at 7pm - Jeff Clements presents "Corporations Are Not People: Reclaiming Democracy from Big Money and Global Corporations "
Join us as we kick off our Fall 2014 Author Events series with Jeff Clements and the updated and expanded Second Edition of "Corporations Are Not People."
Since the Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling that the rights of things - money and corporations - matter more than the rights of people, America has faced a crisis of democracy.
In this timely and thoroughly updated second edition, Jeff Clements describes the strange history of this bizarre ruling, its ongoing destructive effects, and the growing movement to reverse it.
He includes a new chapter, "Do Something!," showing how - state by state and community by community - Americans are using creative strategies and tools to renew democracy and curb unbalanced corporate power. Since the first edition, 16 states, 160 members of Congress, and 500 cities and towns have called for a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United, and the list is growing. This is a fight we can win!
Jeff Clements is a cofounder of Free Speech for People, a nonpartisan campaign to reverse Citizens United, work for equal citizenship for all Americans, and reform corporate law. An attorney, Jeff has represented and advocated for people, businesses, and the public interest since 1988.
