WAMM Calendar
The events collected in the WAMM Events Calendar represent a diversity of viewpoints, which may not be the viewpoint of Women Against Military Madness (WAMM) and/or its individual members.
We make our best effort to include events which are in line with our mission, but we are not intimately involved with the planning of all of the events listed.
Please note that WAMM's provision of information on other groups' events is not meant to convey nor endorse any action contrary to public policy that would be inconsistent with exempt purposes under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3) i.e., charitable purposes.

David Cobb: Creating Democracy and Challenging Corporate Rule
Tuesday, July 29

7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis, 900 Mount Curve Avenue, Minneapolis.

David Cobb is a national spokesperson for Move to Amend. He is a lawyer and political activist. David has sued corporate polluters, lobbied elected officials, run for political office himself, and been arrested for non-violent civil disobedience. He truly believes we must use ALL the tools in the toolbox to effect the systemic social change we so desperately need. Formed in September 2009, Move to Amend is a national coalition of hundreds of organizations and hundreds of thousands of individuals committed to social and economic justice, ending corporate rule, and building a vibrant democracy that is genuinely accountable to the people, not corporate interests. We are calling for an amendment to the US Constitution to unequivocally state that inalienable rights belong to human beings only, and that money is not a form of protected free speech under the First Amendment and can be regulated in political campaigns.

Sponsored by Minnesota Move to Amend.
