A lively discussion about the influence of corporate money in politics. Activists on the front lines of the social justice movement will discuss the campaign to pass an amendment striking down the Citizens United decision, the 2010 U.S. Supreme Court case which held that the First Amendment prohibits the government from restricting independent political expenditures by corporations and unions. The speakers will also highlight the fight for clean elections, the continued influence of the Occupy movement and its messages, as well as efforts to preserve endangered civil liberties.
Presented by the Sholem Community, a progressive, secular Jewish organization. Children ages 5-14 are welcome to try out a Sholem school class while parents attend the presentation. Contact Principal Julie Gamberg <firstname.lastname@example.org> to coordinate.
