Yolo MoveOn will host a community forum on “Creating Democracy and Challenging Corporate Rule” with guest speaker
David Cobb of the Move to Amend campaign from 7:15 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday. The event will be in the Blanchard Room at the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis.

The U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Citizens United v. FEC removed limits to unlimited corporate spending on elections. Cobb, an
attorney and organizer for the Move to Amend coalition, will help local residents understand the history behind the decision and how they can work to abolish “corporate personhood.”

“Corporate personhood is not an inconsequential legal technicality,” Cobb says. “The Supreme Court ruled that a corporation was a ‘legal person’ … before they granted full personhood to African-Americans, immigrants, natives or women.

“We are inspired by historic social movements that recognized the necessity of altering fundamental power relationships,” he said. “America has progressed through ordinary people joining together — from the revolutionaries to abolitionists, suffragists, trade unionists and civil rights activists through to today. Move to Amend is a long-term effort to make the U.S. Constitution more democratic.”

The forum will focus on how Yolo County can join the national movement against corporate personhood. Cobb will provide information about the issue and facilitate a discussion about local action in Yolo County and in communities across the United States to win the amendment campaign through grassroots mobilization.

“We are a diverse coalition with deep roots in communities nationwide,” Cobb said.

For information on Cobb’s visit to Davis, call Rosalinda Martinez, MoveOn coordinator, at 530-662-7693 or Jean Jackman at  530-756-3484.
