About the Arcata Committee on Democracy and Corporations

The CDC, or Arcata Committee on Democracy and Corporations, is an official standing committee established by the Arcata City Council. The CDC seeks to create policies and programs “which ensure democratic control over corporations conducting business within the city, in which ever ways are necessary to ensure the health and well-being of our community and environment.”

Democracy Unlimited helped pass the ballot initiative that brought the CDC into existence and played a lead role in organizing the two Arcata town hall meetings which shaped the formation of the Committee. We continue to provide ongoing organizing support to CDC members. The committee remains a unique and valuable resource for local residents, the only local entity of its kind in the country.

★ To get involved with the CDC, see the official Committee web page on the City of Arcata site, or attend the monthly meeting: third Tuesdays, 4:30pm, in the Arcata City Council Chambers.

★ You can also help out by letting your City Council members know you support the work of the CDC, including policies brought forward by the CDC like the Formula Retail Ordinance. For more info, contact Jon.
