Paul Cienfuegos (Portland, OR) has been doing grassroots community organizing since the late 70's. Paul moved to Oregon in 2011 to work full time on building a Community Rights movement across the state to enshrine authentic local democracy and end corporate constitutional so-called "rights". He is a founding member of CommunityRightsPDX. Over the years, dozens of Paul's articles and speeches have been published in journals and online, and broadcast on "Alternative Radio". Paul co-founded Democracy Unlimited of Humboldt County (California) in 1996. He is the co-author of 'Measure F: The Arcata Advisory Initiative on Democracy and Corporations' which was passed by the voters in 1998. Paul was a founding member of the City of Arcata Committee on Democracy and Corporations which had its origins in 'Measure F'. It is the first committee of its kind in US history, and works to "ensure democratic control over corporations conducting business within the city". Paul (and co-author) are currently working on a book for mainstream Americans on how to dismantle corporate rule. Trained by Joanna Macy, Paul spent three years in Scotland in the early 1980's leading "Despair and Empowerment" workshops to help people to learn how to deal with their painful feelings about the state of our world.

Well-known community rights organizer, and partner with the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF.org), Paul Cienfuegos will be leading this intensive two-day workshop at the Community Center of Mendocino (998 School St., in the town of Mendocino), on President's Day weekend - February 15-16, 2014. This two full day event includes two potluck lunches. Paul is the founder of Democracy Unlimited in Humboldt County, which models new ways of working on a variety of ecological and social justice issues such as forest clear-cutting, weakening organic food labeling standards, and big box store take-over of local business. He also co-founded CommunityRightsPDX.org, which is Portland Oregon's first community rights organization. More information about his 38 years of local activism, and the many workshops and presentations that he has delivered across the country, can be found at PaulCienfuegos.com. The last workshop delivered by Paul, a few months ago in Willits, was over-subscribed and filled up fast.
Third Annual Convention Minutes: part 2
www.thealliancefordemocracy.org, 28 Mar 2002 [cached]
Paul Cienfuegos, the director of Democracy Unlimited, a movement rooted in Arcata and Humboldt County, northern California, reported to the convention on that community's enactment of a local initiative for two publicly-sponsored discussions of the role of corporations in Arcata.To get "Measure F," as it was called, on the ballot, volunteers obtained almost 2,000 signatures in 26 days.It provided that, in the context of citizen sovereignty over corporations, the city council would co-sponsor two town hall meetings on the question, "Can we have democracy when large corporations wield so much influence?"
The daily newspaper, "owned by a major corporation," attacked the measure eight days before the voting as a waste of money.But the mayor, running for re-election, supported the measure, and testimony for it from a local weekly, local nonprofit radio, Jim Hightower, Howard Zinn, and Noam Chomsky were critical, Cienfuegos said.
...
The second forum was held May 10, and Cienfuegos told the delegates that groups are starting identical initiatives in three other communities.
Cienfuegos, a new member of AfD, offered to travel, speak, or conduct weekend workshops about this plan and to help create models for raising and discussing the corporation-and-democracy issue in local communities.He is at PO Box 27, Arcata, Ca.95518, 707-822-2242/ cienfuegos@igc.org.Working closely with Cienfuegos, coordinating responses from Alliance chapters to the Arcata challenge, is attorney David Cobb, a leader of the Houston Alliance, 818 West 31st.

Corporate Personhood Challenged
...
Paul Cienfuegos at EcoNvergence 2009
Activist/author Paul Cienfuegos encourages activists to act as "We The People," with constitutional authority over our government and corporate entities, as he describes the history of corporate personhood. At a talk in Portland at the October 2009 "EcoNvergence," Cienfuegos argues that ordinary people have the legal capacity to define what corporations are, rather than just focusing on regulating what they do ( "Dismantling Corporate Rule"; VB #76.3). Cienfuegos is the Founding Director of Democracy Unlimited of Humboldt County ( http://www.duhc.org).
