On December 6th at 10am the Los Angeles City Council will be considering a resolution to call for a constitutional amendment calling for an end to corporate constitutional rights. When the resolution was in the intergovernmental committee before Councilman Richard Alarcon we had over a hundred concerned Los Angeles area citizens give impassioned testimony about corporate overreach and the need to repeal corporate constitutional rights. When the resolution goes before the full committee we’d like to double, triple or even quadruple the number of concerned articulate citizens from all walks of life to make a public comment. If you’d like to get involved please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
