The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.
Our topic on March 9-11 is CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM.
Our democracy is failing as the money of corporations, special interests and very wealthy individuals enables candidates to run for office, win elections and then pass legislation favoring their contributors. This situation has been greatly exacerbated by Citizens United and other Supreme Court decisions that have eliminated campaign finance laws. What can we do to restore our democracy?
Campaign Finance Reform is a priority for League members nationwide.
