HOW TO GET BIG MONEY OUT OF ELECTIONS
& RECLAIM THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS OF
‘WE THE PEOPLE’
Please join local democracy activists at any of four local appearances by David Cobb, nationally known spokesperson for Move to Amend! David will pull back the curtain on the decades-old story of how corporations have gotten the Supreme Court to give them constitutional rights reserved for the people by the framers of the Constitution. Using these rights, corporations and the super-rich are now allowed to spend unlimited sums to influence our elections! The 2010 Citizens United v. FEC decision is only the latest in a series of decisions that have brought us the infamous Super PACs.
Meet other concerned citizens who want to reclaim our democracy! Get involved in the growing national movement for an amendment to the US Constitution!
David’s talk couldn’t be better timed. This November 6, nearly a third of Massachusetts voters will have the chance to vote on the Democracy Amendment question, a nonbinding ballot question calling for a constitutional amendment to end corporate constitutional rights and allow spending limits in political campaigns.
And please share this announcement with your email lists! The talk is free and open to all, with a Q&A, discussion, and an opportunity to network afterwards.
Wednesday September 19
7 to 9 p.m.
Arlington Street Church, Unitarian Universalist
351 Boylston Street
Corner of Arlington and Boylston Steets.
(Arlington St. T stop)
