Abolish Corporate Personhood Organizing Packet

This organizing packet is designed to help you join with others to Abolish Corporate Personhood. This is an opportune time to build coalitions and public support in communities all over the country around the notion that only human beings should govern. Corporations have no “business” impersonating us!

The goals of this effort are to:

  • insert the issue of corporate personhood into the election campaigns;
  • pass town/city resolutions abolishing corporate personhood in 50 communities;
  • change the ACLU position on corporate free speech.
The issue committee members of WILPF’s campaign to Challenge Corporate Power, Assert the People’s Rights will serve as a clearinghouse for activities and a resource for further actions. Tackle corporate personhood with gusto and let us know what’s happening!
In creating our ten-session study group packet, as well as this packet, we want to acknowledge the valuable information and analysis provided by the Program on Corporations, Law and Democracy (POCLAD).
