RSVP to the event. 

It's time to Elect Democracy for change. To do that, we need to challenge the undue influence of corporate power in Washington DC.

On July 11, Join Global Exchange in Washington DC as we convene a panel of speakers from organizations that are standing up to defend and reclaim our democracy by identifying and/or challenging exorbitant campaign contributions and lobbying budgets design to make elected officials prioritize corporate interests. 

Download the infographic and meet the FIRE sector.
 
Speakers from Global Exchange, Dirty Energy Money, Code Pink, and several other organizations will be working to both explain the impact of corporate campaign contributions and lobbying on their issue area, as well as proposed unique and practical ideas for moving beyond the corporate takeover.
 
At this event, Global Exchange’s Elect Democracy campaign will also be celebrating the launch of our legislative scorecard. We will be releasing a report that tracks FIRE (Finance, Insurance, Real Estate) sector campaign contribution correlated with Congressional voting records on Wall St. Reform, Healthcare, Student Debt, Foreclosure, and more.
 
Please join us for this unique opportunity. Listen to a fantastic, knowledgeable panel of speakers, share your ideas, and pick up a copy of our brand new report. Our goal is for you to leave this event knowledgeable about corporate campaign funding and how to take action to demand accountability and real democracy.
