Leveling the Playing Field: Campaign Finance Reform in New York State
Money's influence on the political process is undeniable and often pernicious. Campaign finance reform is the key to better government for everyone. This educational forum will address initiatives at the state level that seek to level the playing field and to encourage and support the possibility of new candidates entering the political arena. The panel includes State Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins; Assemblywoman Sandy Galef; Jessica Wisneski, Campaign Director, Citizen Action of NY; and Ian Vandewalker, Counsel, Democracy Project at the Brennan Center, NYU. Question and answer period to follow the presentations. Admission free, all are welcome.
