A new coalition called Move To Amend is working to abolish corporate personhood in the US; they're working at the local and state level to pass laws to undo the work of Citizens United, the Supreme Court ruling that equated money with speech.
Boulder is not alone in this fight, nor is it the first community to consider such a resolution.
