Event Description


The Johnson City resident is the main organizer behind “Rally For the Humans,” a demonstration scheduled for Saturday from 2 to 5 p.m., in the 2000 through 2200 blocks of North Roan Street in Johnson City.

Much of the rally’s purpose is to educate East Tennesseans about the push to get a certain resolution on local ballots; the resolution would state that corporations are nonpersons and should be treated as such under U.S. law, and that the U.S. Constitution should be amended to reflect that, Chapman explained Monday.

The local event is part of a larger organization called Move to Amend, which, according to its web site, is at the beginning of a multi-year movement to amend the Constitution. The national coalition has hundreds of organizations and more than 132,000 individuals currently backing it. The movement seeks a law or constitutional amendment to abolish corporate personhood (the idea corporations should have the same rights as people) and by doing so, seeks to limit corporate influence in lawmaking.
