Please join us to welcome Laird and Robin Monahan, two Vietnam veteran brothers, who are walking across America to raise awareness of corporate personhood and the illegitimate constitutional rights that corporations now have because of the US Supreme Court decision, Citizens United v. FEC.  Help us build momentum to amend the constitution so only people --not corporations--will have the rights and protections granted by our constitution. The program will include a brief talk by Laird Monahan and a few others and music by Jim Hermann and Women of the Drum.
