Do powerful corporations exert an unequal and unfair influence over American government?
At the January 16 WILPF meeting Professor Sheldon Kamieniecki, Dean of the Division of Social Sciences at UCSC, will speak about how corporations have influenced the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Congress, and the courts on environmental issues since the rise of the modern environmental movement. Prof. Kamieniecki will address our concerns about the rising power of corporations over the needs of individuals, and give us insights on how we may improve our effectiveness as social justice activists in today’s rapidly changing political environment.
