Move to Amend is coming to California in February 2012 and we need your help!

The recent U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Citizens United v. FEC opened the floodgates to unlimited corporate spending on elections.

David Cobb, an attorney and organizer for the Move to Amend coalition, will be touring California from February 3-13 and February 24-March 3, 2012 to help local residents understand the history behind the recent decision and how they can work to abolish "Corporate Personhood" and establish a government of, by, and for the people by joining the Move to Amend campaign.

David Cobb is fiery speaker, and former Green Party presidential candidate. His talk "Creating
Democracy & Challenging Corporate Rule" is part history lesson and part heart-felt call-to-action!

“Corporate Personhood” is the court-created doctrine that gives corporations constitutional rights intended
for human beings. “Corporate personhood is not an inconsequential legal technicality. The Supreme Court
ruled that a corporation was a ‘legal person’ with 14th Amendment protections before they granted full
personhood to African-Americans, immigrants, natives, or women," says Cobb.

Move to Amend is a coalition of over 155,000 people and organizations whose goal is to amend the United
States Constitution to end corporate rule and legalize democracy.

The events that are already in the works are in Ventura (Feb 5), Orange County (Feb 7), the Bay Area
(Feb 11/12),
