Call in to speak with the host

(646) 929-2495

Guests: Daniel Lee and Mary Beth Fielder from LA chapter of Move to Amend. Daniel and Mary Beth will discuss how they organized to get the Los Angeles City Council to pass a resolution "calling on Congress to amend the Constitution to clearly establish that only living persons -- not corporations -- are endowed with constitutional rights and that money is not the same as free speech." The historic vote makes Los Angeles the first major city in the U.S. to call for an end to all corporate constitutional rights. David Cobb, spokesperson of the Move to Amend national coalition will be joining us during the hour. Hosted by Annabel Park.

This is part of the Citizens Intervention Series focused on discussing the best strategies and the most effective tactics for political reform.
