Is our Democracy in Crisis? Has the balance of power tipped? Join host Susan McCabe as she talks with Riki Ott, Director of Ultimate Civics, a curriculum for students of democracy. Find out how our Constitution and Supreme Court decisions since the country’s early history have shaped our current process – from 1893 when corporations gained standing in the Bill of Rights through the weakening of the National Labor Relations Act in 1947 to today when corporations can legally spend on elections without limit. So who’s really in charge? Tune in to learn the status of your rights and what you can do to activate our democracy. It’s sure to be REAL.
