Move to Amend is barnstorming through California and we're coming to a town near you! Catch a talk in your area, and learn how you can get involved in the campaign to end corporate personhood and demand real democracy!
Join David Cobb, a fiery speaker and former Green Party presidential candidate, as he tours Central California this November giving his talk "Creating Democracy & Challenging Corporate Rule," a rousing presentation about the story of the American creation myth and the Constitution as it pertains to Corporate Personhood and illegitimate but legal corporate constitutional rights. Accompanying David on this tour is Margaret Koster, a Move to Amend organizer for Mendocino County with experience coordinating local ballot campaigns. Following this heart-felt call-to-action, David and Margaret will lead discussions about local participation in Move Amend and joining the national movement to amend the Constitution!
All events are open to the general public. We appreciate your donations to help us finance these tours, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

David Cobb is National Projects Director of Democracy Unlimited. He 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 born in San Leon, Texas and worked as a laborer before going to college. He graduated from the University of Houston Law School in 1993 and maintained a successful private law practice in Houston for several years before devoting himself to full time activism to achieve real democracy in the United States.
In 2002 David ran for Attorney General of Texas, pledging to use the office to revoke the charters of corporations that repeatedly violate health, safety and environmental laws. He did not win the office, but the Green Party of Texas grew dramatically during his campaign from four local chapters to twenty-six. In 2004, he ran for President of the United States on the Green Party ticket and successfully campaigned for the Ohio recount.
