Organizing for Community Rights

Dear supporters,

In the face of corporate power today, the struggle for real, lasting change and the subordination of corporation's 'personhood' rights to real people's rights can seem overwhelming. That's why we want to take this chance to introduce you to some of the amazing and effective work that is being carried out by communities throughout the U.S. that follows a different approach to the traditional regulatory system, one that says plainly and clearly, 'NO, we do not want corporations to have the right to make the decisions where we live! Rather, that right is reserved exclusively for us, the people.'  Everyday we get calls from citizens across California asking us for help on how to take the right to decision making in their community away from profit-driven corporations and put it back into the hands of the people. This week there have been a couple of excellent pieces published that highlight some of the cutting-edge work that has been and continues to be carried out in order to change the rules for corporations and empower real people to get what they want in the places they call home.

Please check out these two articles, from YES! Magazine and AlterNet, for a good look at how citizens across the country are standing up to corporate power in real and meaningful ways!
