JUNE 11-19: Move to Amend Public Speaking Tour in Oregon

May 26, 2011

David Cobb, a fiery speaker, and former Green Party presidential candidate, is touring Oregon giving his talk "Creating Democracy & Challenging Corporate Rule." This presentation is part history lesson and part heart-felt call-to-action! David will also be offering three day-long "Organizing Training" workshops in Corvallis, Eugene and Portland. No past experience is neccesary to attend.

Cobb is an organizer and national spokesman for MoveToAmend.org, a coalition of over 100,000 people and organizations whose goal is to amend the United States Constitution to end corporate rule and legalize democracy.
