Event Description

Why Do Corporations Have More Rights Than You Do?

Pre-registration required.

Corporations have become the dominant institution of our time. They have hijacked our government and economy – our very democracy. A movement is growing to claim our sovereign power, make corporations subordinate and put ‘We the People’ back in charge.

This introductory workshop teaches the history and context for corporate power and will help participants gain the skills and knowledge necessary to reclaim our democracy from corporations.

After an initial presentation, we will facilitate a series of focused discussions and small and large group exercises to assist participants in:

★ Empower yourself with the hidden history of corporate rule and people's movements
★ Learn strategies and skills to build genuine local democracy in Humboldt County
★ Meet people who want to create social and environmental justice
★ Challenge yourself to think outside the box to make *real* change
★ Become part of a community-based effort to reclaim power for people, not corporations

No previous experience or knowledge is necessary to attend.

Cost is $20-$100 sliding scale. Work-trade available - no one turned away for lack of funds. Democracy Unlimited members can attend for free but pre-registration is still required.

Pre-registration is necessary to attend this workshop and spaces are limited. To register contact us at 269-0984 or or register online here.
