Building a Democracy Movement

David Cobb is a people's lawyer, and more importantly an engaged citizen. He has sued corporate polluters, lobbied elected officials, and run for political office himself. In 2002 he ran for Attorney General of Texas, pledging to use that office to revoke the charters of corporations that routinely violate laws designed to protect the environment, public health and safety, and workers. In 2004 he was the Green Party nominee for President of the United States. He initiated the Ohio Recount which helped to spark and nurture a growing election integrity movement against computerized "black box" voting machines.Today he serves on the national leadership team of the Move To Amend coalition and as a principal with the Program on Corporations, Law & Democracy (POCLAD).
