News in Brief: Yolo MoveOn to host community forum

On March 26, Yolo MoveOn will host a forum on “Creating Democracy and Challenging Corporate Rule” from 7:15 to 8:30 p.m. at the Davis Branch Library Blanchard Room, 315 E 14th St.

David Cobb, an attorney and organizer of the Move to Amend campaign, will be a guest speaker. He will discuss the recent U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission (FEC) and speak about how local residents can work to abolish “corporate personhood” and reestablish the government to be of, by and for the people.

Move to Amend is a coalition aimed at ending corporate rule, building a democracy accountable to the people and advocating for social and economic justice.

According to the Move to Amend press release, the forum will focus on ways Yolo County can join the national movement against corporate personhood.
