JOIN CALIFORNIA PROP 49 CAMPAIGN MANAGER DEREK CRESSMAN AT THIS INITIAL MEETING
Get Big Money Out of Politics and Overturn Citizens United
Join Derek Cressman, the Build Democracy End Corporate Rule (BDECR) Team, & the newly forming coalition in support of Prop 49 on the Nov. 5 CA ballot. This advisory vote will direct our elected representatives to support an amendment to the US Constitution to get big corporate money out of politics and end corporate personhood.
Do you agree? Our elections have become auctions controlled by corporations and the very wealthy. Only natural persons are entitled to constitutional rights. We the People have the right to regulate campaign contributions and expenditures. No significant national reforms are possible until we get big corporate money out of politics.

When: Saturday, August 2, 2014, 2-4 PM
Where: Asian Americans for Community Involvement (AACI)
