How Corporations Have Gained Constitutional Rights At the Expense of People  

Learn How Corporate Personhood Impacts Everyday People

In May 1886 the US Supreme Court in Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad set the dangerous precedent of affirming that corporations should be considered “persons” under the 14th amendment.  Since then corporate personhood has been extended and used to advance corporate interests at the expense of meeting a wide range of human needs. Come hear Judy Young, J.D, and William Barrett, Ph.D., from Santa Clara County Move To Amend.     What can we do?
