And, we are asking some of you to bring a dish to pass at 5:30 to 6:30. If you’re not interested in sharing a dish, then please just come for the program at 6:30 pm. The details are below.

This year Human Rights Day will be celebrated on November 30, 2011, with a potluck supper at 5:30 and program at 6:30, at the Downtown Presbyterian Church, 121 Fitzhugh St., Rochester.

Saving Ourselves from Frankenstein:
Human Rights in the Era of the Corporate Person

Speaker David Cobb, engaged citizen, political activist and attorney, has dedicated his life to making the promise of a democratic republic a reality in the United States. He is on staff at Democracy Unlimited and a spokesperson for Move To Amend, a national action-group seeking to amend the Constitution to outlaw corporate Personhood. He will help us reassert the “human” in human rights.

David Cobb was the Green Party candidate for president in 2004, and is a rousing good speaker!
