Democracy and Money: An evening to discuss campaign finance reform

The issue of money in politics remains as salient as ever. The 2018 U.S. election was the most expensive midterm in history, with more than $5 billion spent. However, committed individuals and organizations have been working to develop ideas, policies, and legislative bills that propose plans to strengthen democracy by evening the electoral playing field. Please join us for an evening to discuss these ideas.
