Corporations Are Not People:
Responding to the Supreme Court in Citizens United
Lecture by Jeffrey Clements

Jeffrey Clements lectures in the exhibition We the People, Tang Teaching Museum, March 28, 2013

In this event Jeffrey Clements presented Corporations Are Not People: Why They Have More Rights Than You Do And What You Can Do About It (Berrett-Koehler, 2012), a book about the usurpation of human rights by global corporations and how to restore democracy in the United States.

Clements heads Free Speech for People, a national, non-partisan campaign seeking to ensure that people, not corporations, govern the United States. This group emerged as reaction to the 2010’s U.S. Supreme Court rule in Citizen’s United V. FEC where the Court allowed corporations to spend unlimited amounts of money in the political process granting corporations treatment as people under the U.S. Constitution with the same constitutional rights.
