San Francisco Law Library: Corporations, Constitutional Law & Democracy

Join American Promise President Jeff Clements and attorney John O’Grady of O’Grady Law Group for a talk about a constitutional amendment to reverse Citizens United at the San Francisco Law Library.

Jeff Clements  

How is the U.S. Supreme Court encouraging global and other business corporations to claim First Amendment and other Constitutional rights to avoid regulation, spend unlimited money to influence elections, claim religious exemptions from health insurance laws, and block government investigations? What are the implications of cases such as Citizens United and Hobby Lobby, for Constitutional law, public policy and American democracy? With a growing movement in the States and in Congress to advance a Constitutional amendment to reverse Citizens United and related decisions, what would a 28th Amendment say, how would it work, and what are its prospects?
