Would you like to be part of a diverse, inspired democracy movement to counter the profound effect of money in our political system?
How do we build power together instead of feeling we just continue to put out many fires?
Join us to hear Kaitlin Sopoci-Belkap, National Director of Move to Amend (MoveToAmend.org). Move to Amend is a national coalition of over 450,000 people and hundreds of organizations whose goal is to end corporate rule by building a multiracial, cross-class democracy movement. Combining a history lesson with a heart-felt call-to-action, Kaitlin reveals the origins of corporate power in America, and how we can work together to abolish “Corporate Personhood” and establish a government of, by, and for the people.
Although corporations have acquired never-intended constitutional power that harms people, our communities, and our environment, we are not helpless. And we are many. Instead of isolating and withdrawing, people are finding powerful ways to connect, work in solidarity, and to amplify each other’s voices for lasting change.
If you believe human life shouldn't be secondary to corporate rights and want to see New Haven play a bigger role in an inclusive and diverse democracy movement , then join us in the Performance Area of the Main Ives branch of the New Haven Free Public Library on Saturday the 28th of April.
This event is free & open to the public. Move to Amend finances these tours through the generous donations of event attendees.
