Democracy School – Join us!

The Community Rights Coalition of Jefferson County will be hosting a CELDF – Democracy School on June 7th and 8th.  CELDF or Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund through The Daniel Pennock Democracy School is a stimulating and illuminating course that teaches citizens and activists how to reframe exhausting and often discouraging single issue work (such as opposing toxic dumps, quarries, factory farms, etc.) in a way that we can confront corporate control on a powerful single front: people’s constitutional rights.

The Daniel Pennock Democracy Schools are a key piece of our community organizing.  Named for a boy in Pennsylvania who died after exposure to sewage sludge, the Democracy Schools are one to three-day intensive seminars that examine how communities across the U.S. are beginning to assert local control to protect the rights of their residents, their communities, and nature.
