March 19, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm AKDT
Jeff Clements, President of American Promise, will be on a two week speaking tour across Alaska to build support for a national movement to win an amendment to the US Constitution to address out-of-control spending in US elections and secure the equal rights of Americans to effective representation and participation in self-government. Invited by local citizens in Alaska who are fighting to limit outside money in local land state elections, Jeff will talk about the dramatic growth in SuperPAC spending, the increasing role of concentrated wealth in elections and government, and what we can do to ensure that all the American people are equal citizens in our republic.
On the 19th of March, Jeff will be speaking as part of the William H. Seward Lecture series hosted by the UAA Department of Political Science. The event is open to the public.
