Ashley Sanders is a Salt Lake-based activist fighting for democracy and an end to corporate rule. She first got involved in activism organizing an alternative graduation when her college invited Dick Cheney to speak at their official ceremony, and hasn’t looked back since. She has worked as the youth spokesperson for Ralph Nader’s 2008 presidential campaign, organizing people to fight corporations in their communities. She has also organized extensively for Democracy Unlimited of Humboldt County, California, a collective committed to community sovereignty, bioregional democracy and alternatives to corporate control and capitalism. While there, she helped to launch the Campaign to Legalize Democracy/Move to Amend, a national grassroots campaign to amend the Constitution to abolish corporate constitutional rights and to organize local communities to declare independence from corporate rule. She is now working to organize Salt Lake to support this national amendment and to wage a people’s battle against major corporate polluters. Ashley also works on democratic community revitalization, feminist empowerment and political street theater. She is currently working on a play and book.
