Event Details

Imagine a government run by people, not money!

Join us for some ice cream & a special talk with Ben Cohen and Jeff Clements (former Massachusetts Assistant Attorney General).

"Citizens United" allows corporations to spend even more money in elections. President Obama explained how it “gives the special interests and their lobbyists even more power in Washington - while undermining the influence of average Americans who make small contributions to support their preferred candidates.”

Ben & Jeff will explain how the Stamp Stampede and American Promise campaigns seek to overturn Citizens United and strengthen American democracy.

It advocates for a 28th Amendment to The Constitution to restore American democracy in which we citizens - not money, not corporations, not special interests - govern ourselves.
- Rights for human beings over privileges for corporations and special interests
- Rights of all Americans to equal participation and representation
- Fair and free elections for ALL Americans


This is part of the ongoing Tides Advocacy Fund / Democracy Labs
