Government is increasingly picking economic winners and losers. Businesses compete by buying influence in Washington instead of offering better products and services to consumers.
The Stand with Maine campaign is working towards constitutional reform to fix the incentives currently governing how businesses are forced to make decisions. With less money in politics, more Maine businesses can thrive.
Kerem Durdag, CEO of GWI (Great Works Internet), will join us and speak about how Maine businesses suffer when there is unlimited money in politics. The conversation will be moderated by Roger Katz, Republican former State Senator and Mayor of Augusta. You’ll hear about the problem, but also how to be part of the solution.
With the election fast approaching, there’s never been a better time to learn more about this campaign.
When: Wednesday, October 7th 6:30-7:30pm ET
Where: Remote via Zom
Quarterly Leadership Call Featuring Lisa Lewin
You are invited to join the September 30 quarterly conversation among American Promise’s Leadership Community (Board, Advisory Council, national finance council, donors, and special friends) with special guest National Advisory Council Member Lisa Lewin.
From the corruption and dysfunction of uncontrolled, concentrated money in elections, where political power is allocated based on wealth, to exclusion and racial injustice in voting rights, America faces a constitutional, political and social crisis of political inequality. An ideology of constitutional and political inequality is causing social unrest, government dysfunction, injustice and long-term, systemic corruption of our political system. Lisa Lewin will share her perspective, vision, and ideas for lasting solutions and action we need to take now— before the election— and beyond.
Please join us in this interactive and timely conversation about how we accelerate fundamental reform and justice with the affirmation of constitutional equality, equal voting and representation rights and racial equity.
