Are Corporations People? Apparently Not.

Former Assistant Attorney General wants you to know why corporations are NOT people. Sit in on a lecture by Jeff Clements, author of Corporations are Not People: Why They Have More Rights and What You Can Do About It.

On Tuesday, September 11 from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the Student Union, take part in a riveting discussion with former Assistant Attorney General of Massachusetts Jeff Clements during his talk titled “Corporations Are Not People.”

Clements is currently president and co-founder of Free Speech for People, a national, non-partisan campaign to challenge the creation of Constitutional rights for corporations, overturn Citizens United vs. FEC, and strengthen American Democracy and Republican Self-Government, as well as the author of Corporations Are Not People: Why They Have More Rights and What You Can Do About It. The event is part of the “Democracy in Action–Election 2012” campaign presented by Project Pericles,  a not-for-profit organization that encourages colleges and universities to include social responsibility as an essential element of their educational programming, and the University’s Center for Community Action and Research.
