Reclaiming Democracy Panel feat. Rep. Buckle
Wednesday, May 7, 2014
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Stevenson Union- Diversions (basement area)
Social Sciences, Policy, and Culture
Come and join us for a student-run panel on democracy! We'll be discussing how big money in politics has changed our system and how this affects our democracy.
The panel will feature our own local Representative Peter Buckley, SOU professor William Hughes, and a member of the Jackson County branch of the organization, Move to Amend.
In 2010, The Supreme Court ruled that corporations are people and the money they spend in elections is protected under free speech. We at OSPIRG believe this drowns out the voice of the average voter, like the students here at SOU.
There will be food provided! The panel takes place on the bottom floor of the Stevenson Union, in Diversions at 6 p.m. Wed, May 7th.
