Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Along with a growing community of activists who grew weary of traditional activism after years of negligible results, Michelle Holman formed Community Rights Lane County (CRLC; communityrightslanecounty.org) in Oregon. Prior to that she had followed the well-worn path that citizens are expected to follow: writing letters, testifying at hearings, attending protests, and making our voices known to those with decision making authority, only to learn that the game was rigged and that the outcome was pre-determined to favor those corporate interests that seek to maximize profits at the expense of our communities. Michelle Holman presents "community rights" activism is a way to reclaim democracy in the face of a broken system.

Supported by the 2012 Community Environmental Legal Defense Funds (CELDF~celdf.org/) Democracy School school Michelle explains why being able to stop corporate harms from occurring in our communities is possible.
