After a brief business meeting, todays topic will be "We the People Massachusetts" presented by Jack Dean, representative of We the People.
The meeting will be a presentation and discussion of why we need a constitutional amendment to improve certain challenges in our current democracy – mainly money in politics. This would help level the playing field for individuals interested for running for public office who do not want to fund their campaign with funding from large corporations and/or wealthy donors who may expect certain favors in return.
Presentation highlights include:
• Supreme Court decisions and how they have impacted our democracy
• How past movements have won constitutional amendments
• Current strategies underway in Massachusetts that are focused at the state and federal level and how you can get involved
As Cape Cod currently does not have a local chapter of We the People Massachusetts this is a unique opportunity for residents on the Cape of learn more about this organization and their mission, goals and agenda. This meeting is open to the public. You do not need to be a member of the Chatham Harwich Newcomers Currents Events Discussion group to attend.
