Join Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap, Exec Director of Move to Amend, for an evening to find out how to end corporate personhood and control money in the political system. The 2010 U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Citizens United v. FEC expanded spending on elections from corporrations and weathy individuals. Sopoci-Belknap will help local residents understand the more than century-long history behind that decision and how they can work to abolish "Corporate Personhood" and establish a government of, by, and for the people. The program will focus on how Portland can contribute to the growing national movement to affirm that only human beings have constitutional rights and that money can be regulated in elections and is not defined constitutionally as free speech. Sopoci-Belknap will report on and discuss actions that have taken place in hundreds of communities across the nation in support of the federal We the People Amendment, H.J.R. 48 as part of a larger movement of needed fundamental democratic changes.

Join Dr. Jonathan Simon, author of Code Red: Computerized Election Theft and The New American Century Maintaining a democratic form of government, including being able to correct Supreme Court (mis)interpretations by amending the Constitution, depends on votes being counted, openly and honestly, as cast. Unfortunately, we have a problem of corruptibility and actual corruption in the way we as a nation count our votes. Casting votes is a very private act, but counting them must be public and observable. It's critical to recognize that what happens inside a computer is neither public nor observable. As proud as we are of our democracy, why have we outsourced its core function --counting our votes -- to a few highly partisan corporations using proprietary software that even our elected officials are forbidden to examine?

Date line: Democracy Convention - 2011 Center for Media and Democracy reveals during this workshop the hidden efforts of major American corporations working through the American Legislative Exchange Council to advance their interests by undermining the democratic process. ALEC presented itself as a public interest gathering of legislators working for the public good while, in fact, they were writing and voting on legislation that would then get submitted in legislatures throughout the nation without disclosing the source. This workshop was designed for people who knew enough to be alarmed, people who knew nothing, and people who understood what was happening and how serious this assault had been.  The assault continues. Following the screening, attendees will have the opportunity to submit questions to a panel of experts: ● Kate Titus, Executive Director of Common Cause Oregon  In 2012 the national Common Cause office filed a complaint against the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Whistleblower Office. The complaint charges misuse of charity laws, extensive underreporting of lobbying, and obtaining improper tax breaks for ALEC's corporate funders. ● Lauren Regan, AAL- Founder & Executive Director of the Civil Liberties Defense Center Ms. Regan operates a public interest law firm, The Justice Law Group, specializing in constitutional law, civil rights, and criminal defense. ● Don Merrill - KBOO Lead Investigator A team of KBOO reporters carried out a six-month investigation researching, cataloging and analyzing Oregon legislation which has been influenced, or created by, the American Legislative Exchange Council, (ALEC) ● Hyung Nam teaches social studies at Wilson High School Hyung is a active member of Portland Area Rethinking Schools, NW Teaching for Social Justice Conference Committee, Portland Social Equality Educators and a former member of the editorial board of Rethinking Schools
