Democracy Insurgency Curriculum
Democracy / Self-goverance Groups & Campaigns
MovetoAmend.org is a coalition supported by hundreds of organizations and tens of thousands of individuals dedicated to ending the illegitimate legal doctrines that prevent the American people from governing ourselves. It proposes a constitutional amendment stipulating that a corporation is not a person and money is not speech — therefore, both can be regulated.
Democracy Unlimited of Humboldt County (DUHC) educates citizens about the illegitimate seizure of our authority to govern ourselves. We design and implement grassroots strategies that exercise democratic power over corporations and governments. We seek to create a truly democratic society by provoking a non-violent popular uprising against corporate rule in Humboldt County that can serve as a model for other communities across the United States.

Following up on WILPF's Challenge Corporate Power, Assert the People's Rights campaign, this committee is focused on understanding how corporations use their illegitimate constitutional "rights" and powers to define our law, politics, jurisprudence, work, technologies, food, communities. The Committee distributes information on hidden histories with an eye toward rethinking WILPF activism by placing it in the context of people's right to self and mutual governance and uncovering the meaning of real (radical) democracy along with developing its skills and practice.

ReclaimDemocracy.org works to create a representative democracy with an actively participating public, where citizens don't merely choose from a menu of options determined by elites, but play an active role in guiding the country and its political agenda. We believe that one's influence should be a direct result of the quality of one's ideas and the energy one puts into promoting these ideas, independent of wealth or status. We inspire citizens to make conscious choices about what role corporations should play in our society and to limit them to that role. We are a non-partisan, non-profit (501c3) organization and welcome the opportunity to work with all who share our goals.

A coalition that believes that America works best when our government is of, by and for the people. Although we have differences in scope and tactics, all of us are united in the understanding that the Court's decision in Citizens United must be remedied by amending the Constitution in order to restore the democratic promise of America.

CELDF was formed to provide free and affordable legal services to community based groups and local governments working to protect their quality of life and the natural environment through building sustainable communities. Increasingly, that means teaming up with people and their municipal representatives to mount campaigns that challenge the legal clout of corporations to overrule decisions made by citizens for their communities.

The Liberty Tree Foundation for the Democratic Revolution is a nonprofit organization rooted in the belief that the American Revolution is a living tradition whose greatest promise is democracy. Because that promise is as yet unfulfilled, our central purpose is to build on the accomplishments of earlier American movements by launching a new stage in the struggle for democracy. We are a fellowship of organizers, lawyers, and scholars. We provide support to pro-democracy campaigns in the form of policy research, publications, legal assistance, consultative services, and the convening of pro-democracy organizers.

The CounterCorp Anti-Corporate Film Festival is an annual three-day series of films, post-screening discussions, and related events held in San Francisco. By "anti-corporate" we don't just mean "independent" (i.e., non-corporate) films, but those that examine and reflect the role that corporations play in our daily lives, and the effect they have on people, communities, and cultures around the world — and on the planet itself.
