Meet Shaun McCutcheon. He's the coal company executive whose case before the Supreme Court argued that billionaires like him should be able to write even bigger campaign checks. And now he's taking a "victory lap" to celebrate, making plans with his billionaire buddies to funnel even more money into our elections.
But we're not taking this lying down. On the day the Supreme Court handed down the McCutcheon v FEC case, within hours in 150 cities across the country we and other members of the Democracy Initiative held rallies opposing their decision to sell out our democracy to the highest bidder.
Wednesday, April 16th at 8 pm EST, join us and activists from across the country to discuss the impact of the disastrous McCutcheon decision, to celebrate the successes of the rallies, and to learn more about what we can do next to fight back together.
When McCutcheon, the Koch Brothers and their other billionaire polluter buddies speak, they shout down the free speech of citizens like you and me. If we want to switch to clean, renewable sources of energy and solve the problems of climate change, we must first fix the climate in our elections.
McCutcheon and other polluters can write their checks. Their money may talk, but it doesn't walk. Join us to find out how to take action.
WHO: You, Sierra Club, members of the Democracy Initiative including Public Citizen and Demos
WHAT: Exclusive town hall webinar on how to take action against the disastrous McCutcheon decision
