In addition to my participation on behalf of the League, the panel also includes Nick Nyhart of Public Campaign and Lisa Tyson of the Long Island Progressive Coalition. Event details are below or you can download the event flyer.

In “Post-Citizens United” America, our elections are being deluged by big money. What can the average citizen do to take back our democracy?
The Large Grants Advisory Group invites you to join Nick Nyhart, Executive Director of PUBLIC CAMPAIGN, and Elisabeth MacNamara, President of the LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS, for an evening of stimulating conversation about what their organizations—both Large Grants recipients--are doing to advance campaign finance reform. They will be joined by Lisa Tyson, Director of LONG ISLAND PROGRESSIVE COALITION (a local affiliate of Citizen Action, a key partner organization of Public Campaign).
