Our Major Activity …. Going on Right Now

Ballot Initiative: Corporations Are Not People

The major activity for this year is getting an initiative onto the ballot for November, 2014, and then creating awareness about it so that voters overwhelmingly approve.  The initiative will ask voters of Humboldt County to pass an ordinance that declares within the County of Humboldt, artificial entities, such as corporations, are not legal people and are not entitled to the protections granted by the United States Constitution.  The stated purpose of this Initiative is a long-term goal of changing any federal and/or state law that may oppose this ordinance.
