The Business Ethics Network is holding a free webinar on Donor Disclosure Progress in Remedying Citizens United on Thursday June 28 at 1 pm PACIFIC/ 4pm EASTERN.
Amidst the torrent of corporate money in this year's election, there is some good news. Post Citizens United,
many corporations have spent their political ad dollars through outside spending groups, like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, so their spending would stay secret. But work to require disclosure of the donors behind political ads is gaining critical ground. So much so that the U.S. Chamber decided to change how its spends its corporate members' money to keep them hidden, but coming developments may give these donors no place to hide. Join panelists Blair Bowie of U.S. PIRG, Craig Holman of Public Citizen, and Anne Pernick, Business Ethics Network to discuss:
- What are some of the recent wins on disclosure?
- What are the impacts for this election and future elections?
- What's coming next in the fight for disclosure, and how can people participate in this work to save and strengthen our democracy.
