New Corporations Are Not People book and speaking tour

9781626562103CorpsNotPeople2ndThe new, updated and expanded edition of Corporations Are Not People: Reclaiming Democracy From Big Money And Global Corporations will be released in August. I’ve worked hard to make this book even more of an effective tool for all of the work we do together for American democracy and self-government, and 100% of author royalties are donated to non-partisan, non-profit groups engaged in this work.

I’ll be hitting the road to carry our message across the country in a few weeks, and I’m in the process of adding events now. Here’s the beginning of the schedule:  More events will be added soon.

Please let me know if your organization or one you work with might be interesting in doing an event or otherwise collaborating with the book to get our message out and to continue to build on our progress.  

And if you think you will be interested in the book (I hope so!), you can pre-order it now from your local independent bookstore (such as this one)  Amazon , Barnes & Noble,  Indiebound, or my publisher, Berrett-Koehler  which can arrange bulk discounts for non-profits.

Many thanks, and hope to see you soon.
