Marion County... Who Controls Our Future?
This presentation will lay out the history of corporate “rights” and how communities have begun to focus on structural change and organizing to directly challenge legal doctrines in order to liberate themselves from corporate control. This growing movement is called Community Rights, and it is about shifting from state-sanctioned corporate harms to building healthy, resilient communities.
This presentation and Q&A will be conducted by the Environmental Legal Defense Fund’s Northwest Organizer, Kai Huschke.
Kai Huschke is the Northwest Organizer for the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund. He is also a national Democracy School lecturer and advisor to the Oregon Community Rights Network and Washington State Community Rights Network.
The Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF) is building a movement for Community Rights and the Rights of Nature to advance democratic, economic, social, and environmental rights – building upwards from the grassroots to the state, federal, and international level.
