Democracy, Corporate Power and Climate Change

The Supreme Court’s Citizens United and related rulings have not only unleashed a flood of dark money into elections, they are also being used to block initiatives to transition to a just and sustainable economy. Join local, state and national organizers to learn about efforts to push back against these rules and to find out how you can help restore democracy and challenge the misuse of corporate power. With: Sarah Stranahan, Strategic Development Director at Free Speech For People; Derek Cressman, long-time fair election activist/current candidate for California Secretary of State; Arielle Klagsbrun of Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment/2013 Brower Youth Award recipient.

Recorded Saturday, October 18, 2014 at the National Bioneers Conference in San Rafael, California.
