David Cobb: End Corporate Rule, Legalize Democracy

August 18, 2015

Founding member of Move to Amend and former Green Party Presidential Candidate David Cobb visited Washington State to reveal the origins of corporate power in America and inspire activism for I-735. David’s presentation will help us understand how we can work together to abolish corporate personhood and establish a government of, by, and for the people.

David is a lawyer and political activist. David has sued corporate polluters, lobbied elected officials, run for political office himself, and has been arrested for non-violent civil disobedience. He truly believes we must use ALL the tools in the toolbox to effect the systemic social change we so desperately need.

David was speaking on behalf of the Washington Coalition to Amend the Constitution (WAmend) which is sponsoring Initiative 735. This initiative calls for a Constitutional amendment clarifying that corporations are not people, money is not speech, and that all political donations should be regulated and made public. Hear an outstanding speaker and be inspired to take action for the future!

This talk was given at the IBEW Local 46 Headquarters in Kent, WA on August 13, 2015.
