Presenters from the Pennsylvania Community Rights Network (PACRN) and the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF) will discuss community rights as a legal and organizing strategy for protecting a sustainable future.
Saturday, October 15, 2016 | Pendle Hill Retreat Center (Wallingford, PA)
The presenters will discuss the following topics:
1) how the law prohibits us from governing our own communities, and instead traps us in a system where corporations have more control than we do over the fate of the places where we live;
2) how community rights as an organizing and legal strategy wrests control of our communities from corporate hands, and returns that control to the people living there;
3) how your community can begin this work, advocating for community rights and the change that’s necessary to protect the places we call home.
