Great news, Fellow Progressives!
We have two fantastic events coming up, both centered around ending Corporate Personhood.
First, we have an agreement with The Little Theater to show a movie the first Thursday of each month that relates to the topic of our monthly meeting. The first one will be Thursday, August 4th at 6:30pm. We will be showing The Corporation , a great documentary on how corporations gained so much power in America. Tickets will be $10 with part of the proceeds going to the Green Party of Monroe County to help us continue to work on issues and run candidates.
The second event is our monthly meeting, which is just as exciting. Our old friend and 2004 Green Party candidate for President, David Cobb will be the guest speaker at our next monthly meeting. David has been working with the Move To Amend coalition, to get a constitutional amendment to outlaw corporate personhood. If you remember David from his campaign in 2004, he is a dynamite speaker. The meeting will be outside as well, so bring your lawn chairs or blanket and join us, Monday, August 8th at 7pm at the Susan B. Anthony Square Park, on King Street . As usual, it is free and open to the public so bring your friends!
Green campaigns are starting to ramp up for the November election. The party is in a unique position this year as we are able to put Green candidates on the ballot right up until mid-September (no petition signatures required). If you're a Green who is interested in running for local office this year, please contact the party at (585) 360-0313.
As usual, don't forget our most excellent social networking sites:
