Coalition Building Participatory Discussion & Strategy Session on Challenging Corporate Rule & Creating Democracy

January 27, 2018

Wednesday, February 7  | 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Bowden Building
120 Church St., Pensacola, FL 32502

The influence of money in elections and corporations are decimating education, health care, elections, the economy, the justice system, the environment and the right of We the People to decide. And it will worsen until we build an authentic, diverse, democracy movement that works to end corporate constitutional rights and the doctrine that money is equal to free speech, but which also includes changing laws and rules that have historically oppressed people, neighborhoods and communities.

Join fellow justice and progressive advocacy group representatives and concerned individuals to engage in a gathering to grapple on ways to come together. Let us respect the interests and work of each other to build an authentic local movement for democracy in which the voices of all are heard, the needs of all are met and basic fairness of all is achieved.  

Facilitating the discussion and strategy session will be Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap.

Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap is National Director of Move to Amend, President of the Board of Directors of Democracy Unlimited, and a Local Democracy Fellow for the Liberty Tree Foundation. She has served as a member of the national Leadership Team of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom’s campaign to Challenge Corporate Power, Assert the People’s Rights, the STORY (Strategy Training and Organizing Resources for Youth) Board of the Center for Story-Based Strategy and as a Principal with Program on Corporations Law & Democracy.
