De-Personhooding Corporations House Party

Corporate Personhood is the ideology that claims Corporations have the same Constitutional Rights as people and that their campagn contributions are considered freedom-of-speech protected under the First Amendment rights of these “Corporate-Persons”. Several movements have formed to reverse the supreme court ruling which guarantees corporations the right to contribute unlimited funding to political campaigns. More info.

The organization Move to Amend is teaming up with Public Citizen and People for the American Way initiating a Nation-wide citizens movement to reverse the Supreme Court Ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. The movement is using “house parties for democracy” to; inform the participants on the efforts Move to Amend has made to combat the impact to Corporate Personhood, help make community resolutions in support of an constitutional amendment, plan  local actions for January 21, 2012 (the second anniversary of the Citizens United ruling) and involve people in the growing national campaign to Amend. Senator Bernie Sanders will be a guest speaker for the national conference call to kick off these house parties on November 9. Here are the house parties scheduled for Vermont. (find a house party in your state)
