I-735 Amending the Constitution Forum & Panel Discussion: Corporate Personhood, Money as Speech and the State of Our Democracy

The Yes on Initiative 735 campaign is excited to sponsor a special panel discussion on how the undue influence of money is effecting our political system. Topics to be discussed included how court decisions such as Citizens United got us here, how corporate personhood and money as speech came to be, and how amending the Constitution is a viable option to help restore democracy and bring power back to the people.
