Descripción Entera: 

With 80% of the American public against the decision of the Supreme Court to allow corporations to spend much more money in elections, the response to go back to the previous status quo with a narrow amendment that simply overturns the Supreme Court’s decision on this issue should only be one part of our response. The other part is to use this moment to craft an environmental and social responsibility requirement for all corporations. Among its provisions: that large corporations must get a new corporate charter once every five years, which will only be granted to those corporations that can prove a satisfactory history of social and environmental responsibility to a jury of ordinary citizens (not some government body that would quickly be dominated by the very forces that this approach is meant to challenge).

This workshop will discuss and refine details of the ESRA and also consider the Global Marshall Plan developed by the Network of Spiritual Progressives and introduced to Congress by Congressman Keith Ellison as House Res. 1016.
