Spend an evening with CELDF’s Thomas Linzey, named one of Forbes Magazine Top Ten Revolutionaries. Learn about the community rights movement in the United States and

  • How people in over 200 communities across the country are using their municipal governments to rise up to confront corporate control of those localities.
  • How corporations today use claimed corporate constitutional “rights” to override local bans on fracking, factory farming, water bottling operations, and fossil fuel pipelines.
  • How local communities are beginning to directly and openly challenge the U.S.’s governmental structure that enables corporations to nullify local laws.
  • How the community rights movement resembles people’s movements of the past, like the Suffragists and Abolitionists.
  • How Colorado communities and the Colorado Community Rights Network (COCRN) are pushing back against oil and gas corporations, as well as the State of Colorado.
