Ben and Jerry to Headline Local Democracy Forum

Corporate influence in politics is growing faster than ever in the wake of Citizens United v. F.E.C.  This recent U.S. Supreme Court decision opened the floodgates for corporate money in electoral politics by declaring that corporations have full free speech rights under the law.

But across the country, real people aren’t taking this decision lying down.  Here in Vermont, VPIRG and Clean Yield Asset Management are co-hosting a forum to teach you how you can fight back against the corporate takeover of the political process.

The forum will feature an expert panel of educated and powerful Vermont business owners, professors and lawyers.

See you on Tuesday, November 29th at 64 State Street in Montpelier!
