“Human Rights for Corporations?” will be the topic at the 11 a.m. Sunday service at Prescott Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. Michael Adcock and Loring Cannon, volunteers with Prescott Area Move to Amend, will explain how corporations won the same rights ordinary citizens have, and how we can change that with a 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Jonathan Best will add his unique music to the service.
“Formed in September 2009, Move to Amend is a coalition of hundreds of organizations and hundreds of thousands of individuals committed to social and economic justice, ending corporate rule, and building a vibrant democracy that is genuinely accountable to the people, not corporate interests.” (https://movetoamend.org). They are working toward passing an amendment to the Constitution to state that inalienable rights belong to human beings only, and that money is not a form of protected free speech and they can be regulated in political campaigns. The Prescott Branch of Move to Amend was formed In June 2012.
