100Grannies For A Livable Future and local coalition Environmental Advocates present a FREE and public introductory workshop with National Community Rights Educator Paul Cienfuegos. In this 4-hr workshop you will learn:
– Why counties and communities can’t keep out harmful activities (like CAFOs, pipelines)
– Why corporations are “people,” with MORE rights than human beings.
– Find out how we can change the system so community rights take precedence and the rights of nature can be protected
– How 200 communities in nine states have already passed legally binding, locally enforceable laws that ban harmful corporate activities and rein in the “rights” of corporations; and we can do it too!
Be inspired and empowered, meet like-minded and socially engaged people in the community, and get informed on the issues! Be the change you wish to see in the world!
