Lawrence Lessig to speak on campaign reform

Over 100 people attended our discussion last Wednesday about the Citizens United decision we co-hosted with the Providence Athenaeum. It was a wonderful evening of civil discourse on a matter of tremendous importance for our democracy. Thank you to all who attended and participated.

This week, we are happy to announce that there will be a public lecture by Professor Lawrence Lessig of Harvard Law School and Fix Congress First! titled "Campaign Reform in the Digital Age." Professor Lessig's talk will examine the repercussions of the Citizens United decision, particularly the prospect for Fair Elections legislation. The talk and discussion will be an great extension of the conversation about the implications of the Supreme Court's decision for our democracy.
