This week features Ohio Move to Amend organizer Michael Greenman to talk with us about the Interfaith Caucus and the role of faith and conscience in the movement to amend the Constitution.

Michael Greenman retired in 2011 as the Executive Director of the Glass Manufacturing Industry Council (GMIC), located in Westerville, Ohio. Since 2000 he has focused on efforts to eliminate Corporate Personhood.  As a member of the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbus, Michael is the lead coordinator of the MTA affiliate: “Move to Amend – Central Ohio”.  He recently led a team of UUs who, during the denomination’s annual gathering in June 2013, obtained the denomination’s approval to encourage congregations all around the country to focus on supporting the passage of a constitutional amendment to declare that “corporations are not persons” and “money is not speech.” He is currently collaborating with MTA as Moderator of the Interfaith Caucus, bringing together other communities of faith and ethical values to form a coalition to build from our common values to restore real democracy without corporate domination. Michael did his undergraduate work at Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota, and earned a degree in Romance languages from the University of Minnesota. He is fluent in several languages and has lived in 10 countries. Michael’s professional career prior to entering the glass industry includes 9 years in the U.S. Navy and 20 years in international business with Caterpillar and John Deere.  He was also the Executive Director of a London-based fund management firm, a Third World development organization, and Founder/Coordinator of a European-based “International Business Network” seeking to bring human values into the business world.
