‘The UU Case Against Corporate Personhood’

On Sunday, May 15, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will hear a presentation by Pauline Benetti on “The UU Case Against Corporate Personhood.” 

Benetti maintains that the Supreme Court’s decision to grant First Amendment rights to corporations violates several of the principles that Unitarian Universalists pledge to uphold.  She further states that, “If we are to be responsible about truth, we must admit that ‘We the People’ has become ‘We the People and Corporations.’ “

Pagosa resident Benetti holds in her history a teaching career which she describes as, “devoted to shaping and forming creative, thinking individuals.”  She  also had a corporate career as a trainer and technical writer. Now she has returned to her genetic roots: soil, water, plants, critters, and a desire to be of service.

On May 15 and 22, the children and  young people will explore the concept of humanism. They will celebrate science and our world to discover how humanists think and what they believe.

The service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall, Unit B-15, Greenbriar Plaza.  Turn east on Greenbriar Drive off of North Pagosa Boulevard by the fire station, then left into the back parking lot and look for the big sign.   All are welcome.
