Join us for a screening of The United States of ALEC, a documentary narrated by Bill Moyers that examines how corporations and state legislators are colluding to write laws and remake America. Common Cause Connecticut senior organizer Kim Hynes will be introducing the film. Learn about how corporations are affecting the American political process on even the state level!

Tu[es]day: Election Reform Panel at 6:30pm in PAC 002!

I wish I was going places, like Olivia Horton ’14. Then maybe I wouldn’t still be awake:

Concerned with the massive influence of PACs and corporations on the election process? Interested in local and nationwide reform efforts?

Come hear from Senior Organizer for Common Cause in CT Kimberly Hynes about local and statewide issues. Regional Field Organizer for Democracy Matters Anita Kinney will talk about the problems and work being done to fix them at the nationwide level.

Facebook: See, just where it was supposed to be.
