Forum: Benefit Corporations (hosted by Arthur Jackson)

When: Sunday, October 29 2017 @ 11:00 AM - - 12:15PM
Where: Humanist House
1180 Coleman Ave.
San Jose, CA 95110
Description: Longtime Humanist Community member and leader Arthur Jackson will introduce the concept of a Benefit Corporation, and then show a 30 minute video of a HCSV Forum talk by John Montgomery on Benefit Corporations from 3/31/13 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4djAObGZnmI). Mr. Jackson will then host the Q&A period, drawing from Johnís article in the May/June 2014 issue of The Humanist magazine (https://thehumanist.com/magazine/may-june-2014/features/the-benefit-corporation) which Mr. Jackson helped make possible by connecting John with Jennifer Bardi, the editor of The Humanist.

Mr. Jackson would like to promote the idea of Benefit Corporations, which give corporations a conscience so they benefit all of society - not just the investors. Mr. Jackson's goal is to find a way to develop pressure groups to spread the idea of benefit corporations and the power they have to change the whole world through using economies fairly. In contrast, traditional corporate law often forces corporations to stand in opposition to a societyís best interests.

After the Forum, please join us for a lunch at 12:30pm. The lunch is complimentary for first-time visitors and students. This event is sponsored by Humanist Community in Silicon Valley
