As part of Case Western Reserve University’s Social Justice Teach In, CELDF’s Ohio Community Rights organizer Tish O’Dell will give a brief introduction to Community Rights and begin exploring why we don’t have the power to establish minimum wage laws, LGBT rights, stop pipelines, and other issues facing our communities. O’Dell will explore how the corporate state overrides local democratic decision-making, and forces unjust labor, environmental, and discriminating practices into our communities. And, participants will see some examples of communities using Community Rights to elevate the rights of people and nature over the corporate state.
Saturday, February 10th, 12:30 – 1:25 p.m.
