    Move to Amend Reports w/ Laura Bonham & Egberto Willies

    in Politics

    MARCH 24, 2016


    This week join us for a conversation about the damaging effects of money in US politics and the urgency of passing a constitutional amendment to end corporate constitutional rights and overturn Citizens United with lead co-sponsor of the We the People Amendment in the US House of Representatives (HJR 48), Representative Rick Nolan of Minnesota.  In the second half of the show, David Cobb, Move to Amend Outreach Director, talks with us about finding common ground in an era of deep political polarization to build a trans-political movement and all of Move to Amend’s exciting campaigns in this 2016 election year.


    Congressional leaders refer to Congressman Rick Nolan as “a political force of nature.” Returning to Congress in 2013 After more than 32 years in domestic and international business and community work, Congressman Nolan represents Minnesota’s sprawling 8th district. Nolan was recently named one of the top ten most effective Members of Congress in a study by the University of Virginia and Vanderbilt University. He was also singled out by TIME magazine for his leadership in keeping America out of war with Syria. His leadership across the board has earned him praise from various Labor, business and consumer groups throughout the nation.


    David Cobb is Move to Amend’s Outreach Director and a Principal with the Program on Corporations, Law and Democracy. 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.

    It can be hard to ignore Donald Trump this election season, but our eyes are on Washington State and Toledo, Ohio, where the public will vote to support The We the People Amendment. In Washington State, the WAmend Coalition is leading the charge for a statewide initiative, and our Move to Amend affiliate in Toledo is moving forward with a city-wide initiative to be voted on March 15.


    Our guests, Move to Amend Spokane’s Stacy Cossey, WAmend organizers Diane Jones & Cindy Black, and Toledo Move to Amend’s Douglas Jambard-Sweet, will bring us up to date on both processes and what you can do to help us win!

    The politics of hate is strong in the 2016 election cycle, and its rhetoric has few bigger targets than the people of the Muslim community. US history reveals a longstanding pattern by the ruling class using systems of oppression to divide and conquer the masses, with the poor and middle class of all colors being its biggest targets. Islam is no exception to this oppression, as the religion practiced by over 2 billion people is a frequent target for right-wing corporate networks seeking to make money off spreading fear and misinformation which fuels anti-Islamic extremism in the United States and a highly-profitable “War on Terror” in the Middle East.


    As communities of color mobilize movements for black lives and immigrant rights, the Muslim community is also rising to challenge the systems of racism and other oppressions still being enforced. We confront the problem of Islamophobia in American politics and clear up the common misconceptions about Islam in a conversation with Maheen Ahmed from the Sacramento Valley chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

    Fresh sweet berries are nature’s candy, or so we like to think. But there’s nothing natural about the inhumane treatment experienced by the farmworkers responsible for bringing those berries to your table.


    Join us for a conversation with farmworker and union activist Alfredo “Lelo” Juárez, and community organizer with Community to Community Development and Move to Amend board member Edgar Franks on the fight to expand democracy and procure human rights for migrant farmworkers, as we bring into focus the first farmworkers' union, Familias Unidas por la Justicia, and the ongoing boycott of berry products from corporate agribusiness, Sakuma Brothers Farms and Driscoll's.
