Cleveland Democracy Day presented by CLE Move to Amend
Think there’s too much money in politics? Does it seem that corporations have too much power in our community, state and nation? Cleveland City Council will its first “Democracy Day” public hearing on May 8 at 5 pm at Cleveland City Hall (2nd floor conference room). The public is invited to attend and provide testimony for up to five minutes per person. Whether you wish to speak or just to listen, please plan to attend. It’s your democracy! How did we win Democracy Day? In 2016, more than 9000 signatures were collected on a grassroots citizens initiative petition calling on Cleveland City Council to urge Congress to pass a Constitutional Amendment stating that corporations do not have constitutional rights and money is not “free speech.” The initiative also called for City Council to sponsor a every-other-year public hearing to examine the impact on our neighborhoods, city, state and nation of political influence by corporate entities and big money. City Council passed an ordinance containing these provisions last December. Hosted by Move To Amend - Cleveland.
