Profile: New York City Council (NYCC)

New York City Council (NYCC) was a participant or observer in the following events:

The New York City Council votes to adopt a resolution condemning the concept of “corporate personhood” as established by the 2010 Citizens United decision (see January 21, 2010) and other rulings and laws. Jonah Minkoff-Zern of Public Citizen applauds the ruling, saying that his organization expects “elected officials to heed the call for constitutional reform that makes clear that democracy is for people, not for corporations.… People across the country are standing up to reclaim our democracy.” [Truthout (.org), 1/4/2012] A month ago, the Los Angeles City Council adopted a similar resolution (see December 6, 2011).
