    OHIO: The Great Constitutional Hijacking: The Fourteenth Amendment and Qualified Immunity

    Move to Amend Ohio’s Quarterly Statewide Gathering  (Virtual Event)

    POSTPONED DUE TO A FAMILY EMERGENCY. TO BE RESCHEDULED FOR NEXT MONTH.

    **Please RSVP below to receive Zoom link and dial in phone number**

    Guest Speakers

     

    Cynthia Brown, DeEscalate Ohio Now Coordinator

    Pamela (Pam) Brooks, Jane and Eric Nord Associate Professor of Africana Studies, Oberlin College


    Professor Pam Brooks will interrogate the post-Civil War’s Fourteenth Amendment, from its lofty promises of full citizenship and “equal protection of the laws” for all Americans to its hijacking by powerful interests. Providing current context of what this means for Ohioans today, Cynthia Brown, Ohio’s leading advocate for the state’s Repeal Qualified Immunity campaign, will discuss the doctrine that perversely grants immunity to officials who violate citizens’ rights, including those guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment.

    Background: Within twenty years of the Fourteenth Amendment’s ratification in 1868, Big Money successfully claimed that corporations are people (“constitutional persons”) that likewise deserved constitutional “We the People” rights. Since then, successive Supreme Court rulings have granted corporations other U.S. Constitution rights, all based on the Fourteenth Amendment. This important session will illustrate how powerful forces have subverted its guarantees of full citizenship for emancipated black people to instead legitimize laws that put property rights over black lives. 

    The Fourteenth Amendment: “No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

    The event is free, and all are welcome!

    However, you can attend a VIRTUAL MEET-AND-GREET at our next monthly meeting.

    Here's the Zoom link:

    https://us02web.zoom.us/j/88951967450

    Join us with your favorite beverage from the comfort of your home, learn about the movement to get big money and large corporations out of elections and public policy decisions, meet the local volunteers working for a 28thAmendment, and find out how you can get involved.

    FYI, we had recently started meeting in person at the Randolph & McCulloch Freedom's Struggle Complex, developed by Larry Hamilton, a retired African American history teacher dedicated to promoting an inclusive history of our area and the United States. When you get a chance, stop by the complex, enjoy a cup of coffee from the North Star Coffee Station and learn about the Randolph Freedmen who settled in Rossville—just across the river—in 1846. Thank you, Larry, for letting us meet at your facility. We look forward to getting back to the RandMac and meeting together in person.
