The City of Brecksville will sponsor a community forum on the impact of political spending from corporations, unions, PACs and SuperPACs on their community. Most of the forum will be dedicated to public testimony. The forum is the result of passage last November of a citizen initiative that also called on Congress to pass a constitutional amendment declaring that only human beings possess inalienable constitutional rights and that political money is not equivalent to political speech.

Summary: U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice (and Toledo native) Morrison Waite is accused of granting corporations “personhood” rights for the first time in US history in the 1886 Santa Clara vs. Southern Pacific Railroad case – long before the Citizens United vs. FEC decision of 2010. You’ll learn how the Santa Clara decision perverted the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, which was intended to provide equal protection and due process rights solely to freed slaves. Santa Clara paved the way for many other “corporate personhood” Supreme Court decisions. In celebration of Black History Month, join us to learn what you can do to help create fair elections and real democracy in our nation.
Weekly Peace Vigils are held every Friday, rain or shine, in Akron at the corner of Market and Main Streets from 4:00 to 5:00 pm
