Citizens United: What’s Possible for Donors and Activists

We’re all familiar with the many issues caused by the 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision. It will be many years (and many election cycles) before we see any changes to the new electoral landscape the decision has created. What can we do in the short term?

Maxim Thorne has some intriguing answers. On Tuesday, July 10th from 5:00 – 6:15 pm EST, Funding Exchange will present a political education call: Citizens United: What’s Possible for Donors and Activists.

During the call, Maxim, who holds teaching positions at Yale College, Yale Law School and Yale School of Management, will explore his provocative idea that nonprofits can and should begin to think of financial power and freedom of speech differently. He’ll explain why nonprofits must stop ignoring the positive and powerful implications of Citizens United.

Join us on July 10th for a lively discussion of how progressives can exploit the “liberation” of corporate free speech in the c3 realm to craft longer-term restrictions on the influence money on our democracy.
