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

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

    Saturday, October 23 | 10 am ET

    **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

    Charles Peterson, Associate Professor of Africana Studies & Chair of Africana Studies, Oberlin College


    Professors Brooks and Peterson 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!

    STRIKING DOWN DEMOCRACY: How our Rights are Hijacked by Corporations in our Communities

    Thursday, November 11

    5:00 - 6:30 pm PT | 6:00 - 7:30 pm MT | 7:00 - 8:30 CT | 8:00 - 9:30 pm ET

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

    Laws and regulations passed by local elected officials and citizen-driven ballot initiatives protecting or expanding the health, safety and/or welfare of residents, the environment, and "democracy" are increasingly overturned by state and federal elected officials and courts. Political, economic, social, environmental and psychological harms are the results. This anti-democratic preemption of local decisions is due to a culture and constitutional rules protecting property and profit over people and the planet.

    Learn about this problem and solutions both from the bottom-up and top-down from two organizations that centralize creating authentic democracy and abolishing corporate constitutional rights.

    Speakers 

    Chad Nicholson, Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (Pennsylvania)

    Susie Beiersdorfer, Ohio Community Rights Network 

    Debra Fant, Lincoln Country Community Rights (Oregon) 

    Jessica Munger, Program Director, Move to Amend

    Michael Tucker, Los Angeles Move to Amend

    The event is free, and all are welcome!

    Sponsored by the  National Community Rights Network and Move to Amend
