NHCRN Community Rights Awareness Workshop Who Decides What Happens in Local Communities? Can it be Changed, and How?
M.Wuerker …Wondering why corporations have more power than local communities? …Wondering why state governments permit corporations to harm communities? …Wondering why state governments routinely prevent communities from local lawmaking decisions that are in the best interests of the community?
New Hampshire Community Rights Network (NHCRN) partners withCommunity Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF) to take an in-depth look at how political and legal structures have been set up to protect the interests of an elite wealthy minority, at the expense of the majority of people and community self-government. We’ll look at how corporations have received more rights and protections than real people living in communities; and we’ll look at how communities have pushed back against these oppressive structures to reclaim democratic self-government in their communities, and at the state level with a proposed Community Rights Amendment.
