David Cobb is a "people's lawyer" who has sued corporate polluters, lobbied elected officials, and been arrested for non-violent civil disobedience. He was the Green Party nominee for Attorney General of Texas in 2002 and the Green Party nominee for President of the United States in 2004, and managed the Stein/Baraka campaign in 2016.
David will make a short presentation on the activities of the national Green Party and various Green chapters around the country, and the growing "Democracy Movement" developing in the United States, and facilitate a collective discussion about how Greens can help nurture and grow that movement, as well as the Green Party. Here is a good link to get a sense of some of what he will talk about: http://www.jill2016.com/ voting_justice_americans_need_ real_democracy
