Move To Amend, a national campaign to amend the U.S. Constitution to specify that corporations aren't people, will hold a community forum in Tallmadge next weekend.
David Cobb, the campaign's spokesman, will speak at the forum titled "Creating Democracy and Challenging Corporate Rule." Organizers describe the event as "part history lesson and part heart-felt call to action."
The effort seeks to nullify the U.S. Supreme Court's Citizens United decision that granted corporations the same rights as individuals to make political contributions.
More than 360,000 people have signed an online petition supporting the proposed constitutional amendment.
The local event will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 31 at Munroe Falls Metro Park, 1088 North Ave.
