Do you think that money overwhelms the political system? Maybe that corporations have so much power that our voices and desires for our future are drown out? If so, and you want to do something about it, please on attending this event sponsored by Economic Justice Action Group.

Join Economic Justice Group and Exec. Director of Move To Amend for a talk and discussion with Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap, the national director. The talk is titled Creating the Democracy Movement to Abolish Corporate Personhood.

The 2010 U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Citizens United v. FEC expanded spending on elections from corporations and wealthy individuals. Sopoci-Belknap will help local residents understand the more than century-long history behind that decision and how they can work to abolish “corporate personhood” and establish a government of, by, and for the people.

Admission: $5-20 donation requested but no one turned away for lack of funds. More info: David Delk, 503-232-5495, davidafd@ymail.com
