United For the People GA Press Event and Petition Delivery - Decatur, GA

Attend our press event as we move ahead to plan to pass a resolution through the Decatur (GA) City Commission calling for a constitutional amendment reversing Citizens United, defining corporations as not being people and that money is not speech. We will be holding a mock wedding at the Courthouse Square in Decatur joining in unholy matrimony a corporation (bride) and our legislative body (groom) officiated by ALEC to demonstrate how these alliances are detrimental and undermines our democracy. The press event will feature members of the United For the People coalition partners along with local concerned citizens who will announce the resolution efforts they plan on introducing in Decatur in July and plans for other cities and the state of Georgia.. We will attend the Decatur City Commission meeting at Decatur City Hall, 509 N. McDonough St., Decatur, GA 30031 at 7pm to present a petition collected by MoveOn.org from members and citizens calling for the reversal of Citizens United and rejecting corporate personhood.
