    You, yes you, have the opportunity to help 4.5 million voters in Massachusetts stand up for political equality and end the era big money and special interests.  Isn't that amazing?

    The signature drive for the People Govern, Not Money 2018 ballot initiative is underway and we need everyone in the Bay State to help out!  This is an historic all volunteer effort and we'll prove you don't need millions of dollars to run a successful ballot campaign.  We need to be confident and competent spokespersons for this effort, so first thing's first - TRAINING!

    Come, join us to learn about signature gathering best practices, money in politics talking points, and everything else you'll need to know to be successful.  Most importantly, meet your neighbors who are also working on collecting signatures and fired up to fight for a government of, by, and for the people!

    Michigan is slated to have one of the most expensive election years coming up in 2018. This is the new normal in the post Citizens United world, but with your help we can end the domination of big money in our elections with a nationwide movement for political equality. 

    Jeff, is a founder and President of American Promise and co-founder of Free Speech for People. He is the author of Corporations Are Not People: Reclaiming Democracy From Big Money & Global Corporations. In his legal career, he has been a partner in a major Boston law firm and has served as Assistant Attorney General and Chief of the public law enforcement bureau in the Attorney General’s Office in Massachusetts.

    Joining Jeff will be Craig Mauger from The Michigan Campaign Finance Network (MCFN) and Judy Karandjeff from the Michigan League of Women Voters.  MCFN is a nonpartisan nonprofit organization that seeks to shine the brightest light possible on the role of money in Michigan politics. The organization's website is www.mcfn.org

    The fight to take back our democracy will not be an easy one, but we are well on our way to make sure our government knows that the people -- not money - govern the United States!  It is time to stop the near 20 million dollars being spent on Michigan's elections, and reclaim our Democracy!
