a community dialogue
Green Party Gubernatorial Candidate Deb Shafto , and David Cobb , national spokesperson for Move to Amend, will travel around Texas, Aug 7-13, to lead community dialogues about this growing movement for democracy in the United States. Unelected and unaccountable corporations have hijacked our government, and there is a national coalition of diverse public-interest, community, and business organizations that has issued a bold call to amend the U.S. Constitution to restore the power of people over corporations.

David Cobb was the Green Party nominee for President of the United States in 2004, and served as the General Counsel for the national Green Party from its creation until 2003 when he launched his campaign. He has dedicated his legal career to challenging illegitimate corporate power and to making the promise of democracy a reality.
In 2002 he ran for state Attorney General in Texas, pledging to revoke the charters of corporations that repeatedly break heath, safety, and environmental laws.
David is a principal with the Program on Corporations Law & Democracy http://www.poclad.org/ and Campaigns Director for Democracy Unlimited of Humboldt County http://www.duhc.org/.
