Organizer/Author
Come see and hear David Cobb, one of the foremost authorities on undoing the Supreme Court's decision to allow corporations to donate unlimited amounts of money to political candidates.

David's presentation will include information from his recent participation in the Democracy Convention in Madison Wisconsin, and the different approaches to undoing what is consider one of the most destructive decisions to democracy ever made by the Supreme Court.

On January 21, 2010, with its ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations are persons, entitled by the U.S. Constitution to buy elections and run our government.
