This workshop will examine how corporate power erodes our ability to address climate change, prevent gun violence, pass just and humane immigration reform and attend to any number of other justice issues. We will look at the history of corporate power and how recent court decisions such as Citizens United have expanded that power. Finally, the workshop will look at how our faith based advocacy and personal choices can help to dismantle that power.
