JOIN PUBLIC CAMPAIGN: How Money Corrupts Congress with Lawrence Lessig

Please join us next Tuesday, October 18 at 8:00 PM EST at the George Washington Law School for a lecture with Harvard Law Professor and founder of Rootstrikers, Lawrence Lessig. Professor Lessig is a profoundly compelling voice for our movement.

He’ll be discussing his terrific new book, “Republic, Lost,” which shows how money corrupts Congress and suggests policies and strategies that would bring sweeping change.

One Year after Citizens United:

On January 21, 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Citizens United v. FEC that corporations, labor unions, and certain non-profits could spend unregulated funds running advertisements to promote the election or defeat of federal candidates. This stands as a seminal moment, for good or bad, in our politics and campaign finance jurisprudence.
