We will screen Legalize Democracy, a new 30 minute documentary from Move to Amend. Historical timelines featured in the film tell the story of the Supreme Court cases that shaped the doctrine of “corporate personhood”, the rights guaranteed by amendments fought for by people’s movements, and the intersection of law and culture that codified and created discrimination based on race.
He will be giving a short presentation, to tell you about the new “Pledge To Amend” campaign, that here in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties is directed at our state representatives Hannah-Beth Jackson and Das Williams, part of a national effort to build support for a Constitutional amendment at the state level (a Constitutional amendment must be ratified by legislatures in 3/4 of the states). In the process we’ll also be building general support for a Constitutional amendment that will return power to the people, where it belongs.
Move to Amend is calling for an amendment to the US Constitution to unequivocally state that inalienable rights belong to human beings only, and that money is not a form of protected free speech under the First Amendment and can be regulated in political campaigns.
Discussion and update on the current status of the Move to Amend movement follow.
