Because corporate resistance to action is perhaps the greatest current obstacle to addressing Climate Change, we think this workshop on how to limit excessive corporate influence over government might be useful. Registration required (see below).

Join us in Bozeman on Saturday, December 8 for this special one-day workshop and strategy retreat, facilitated by Jeff Milchen, Reclaim Democracy's founder.
Milchen's commentaries on behalf of pro-democracy work and localization has been published by more than 40 newspapers and magazines, including theWashington Post, Inc. Magazine, Adbusters, The Ecologist and many others. He also speaks internationally on these topics.
Many of today's Democracy Movement leaders made leaps forward in their work as a result from participating in workshops much like this (including several led by Milchen.
Corporations wield great power over our elections, our government agencies, lawmakers and much of civil society, often using that power to advance their interests at the expense of the public good.
How can we reign in corporate power and ensure that corporations act responsibly?
This workshop and strategy retreat will grapple with the roots of corruption of our democracy and help you gain deeper understanding and tools for becoming more effective agents of change.
The workshop will prod you to question some of your basic assumptions, deepen your understanding, and ultimately help sharpen your focus and effectiveness as an active citizen. We’ll work to develop strategies on how each campaign we wage in Montana can be part of a larger movement to dismantle corporate power and revive democracy. We'll also explore "next steps" after the overwhelming, but symbolic success of the I-166 initiative.
The bulk of the workshop consists of facilitated discussion geared toward creating effective strategies. Well touchg n these topics before delving into MT-specific discussion of strategies.
