Legalize Democracy examines the history of corporate personhood and domination in America. Produced by Move to Amend, the film includes interviews with a number of national Move To Amend leaders and supporters, as well as historical evidence, to show the multitude of ways that power and money have come together to deny average people basic rights and preserve status. The 28 minute-long film examines the dovetailing of racism and corporate rights, initially enshrined in the constitution, and then enumerates the history of victories by people's movements, painting a picture that a more just future is possible.
Q&A and discussion to follow with Greg Coleridge, national Move to Amend Outreach Co-Director and former Director of the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) in Northern Ohio.
Move to Amend is a national coalition of hundreds of organizations and hundreds of thousands of individuals committed to social and economic justice, ending corporate rule, and building a vibrant democracy that is genuinely accountable to the people, not corporate interests. MTA is calling for an amendment to the US Constitution to unequivocally state that inalienable rights belong to human beings only, and that money is not a form of protected free speech under the First Amendment and can be regulated in political campaigns.
