Mentor Move to Amend Invites Public to View Film, "Legalize Democracy"

April 2, 2014

Public Invited to View the Film “Legalize Democracy”

MENTOR – Legalize Democracy examines the history of the relationship between corporate
power, oppression and people’s social movements in the quest for real democracy in
the US.

The 28-minute documentary utilizes interviews and historical legal and constitutional
evidence to document how people of all genders, nationalities and races have strived
for democracy and how corporations and the wealthy few have won never intended
rights and power to rule – at the expense of our civil liberties, communities and
environment.

Legalize Democracy is produced by Move to Amend (movetoamend.org), the national
coalition seeking a US Constitutional Amendment to increase democracy by
establishing that only human beings, not corporations, possess inalienable
constitutional rights and that political money is not equivalent to political speech.
More than 500 communities across the nation have passed either resolutions or
initiatives in support of the Move to Amend amendment.

The event will be held Saturday, April 12, 1:00 PM until 3:00 PM at East Shore Unitarian
Universalist Church, 10848 Chillicothe Rd., Kirtland, OH.

The afternoon will include:
Discussion of the film and implications for our democracy
An explanation of the issue that Mentor Move to Amend has placed on the
ballot this November, and how it will affect the citizens of Mentor
Questions and Discussion
Upcoming Mentor Move To Amend events
