Speak Out Against Big Money in Politics!

Citizens Commission Town Hall Meeting

St. Stephens Parish, 67 East St, Pittsfield MA

The Citizens Commission resulted from a law passed by 71 percent of Massachusetts voters in a citizens ballot initiative in November 2018. Over 1,000 volunteers helped speak with hundreds of thousands of voters and collect over 130,000 signatures to place Question 2 on the ballot. Currently, the Commission is holding Town Hall Meetings across the Commonwealth to receive input from MA citizens regarding their thoughts, feelings, experiences, and suggestions related to overturning the devastating Citizens United vs. FEC Supreme Court ruling, getting big money out of politics, and un-corrupting the U.S. government.

Individuals are encouraged to give oral and/or written testimony at this meeting. Oral presentations will be limited to approximately 3-5 minutes, to be determined by the number of attendees. There is no restriction on the length of written testimony. Feel free to arrive and depart from the meeting at any time that is convenient for you.

Parking Instructions โ€“ On-street parking will be available on Allen St., and in the bank parking lot across from the Allen St. entrance to the church. On-street parking is also available on East St., and in the municipal parking lot near the corner of Fenn and First Streets.

Please consider participating in this important event. Democracy isnโ€™t a spectator sport!
