Listen to CELDF’s radio program – Democracy Matters – every Thursday at 10am Eastern/7am Pacific at   You can also podcast the show each week at, click on “Democracy Matters.”

On this week’s program, we have a roundtable discussion on marijuana legalization efforts in various states; an interview with Angela Johnson, a Washington State director of the National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) on the recent effort to qualify an initiative on marijuana legalization in Washington State; and a discussion on corporate chartering – and how, even though state governments create corporations, that those corporations end up outside of citizen control.

Each week we bring you stories from the frontlines as communities bring rights-based organizing to their communities – asserting their local self-governing authority to make the critical decisions that affect their lives and their community.
