The League of Women Voters of Wayland presents
FIXING OUR BROKEN DEMOCRACY
Thursday, May 11, at 7:30pm
Senior Center

Our speaker is Paul Lauenstein, a conservationist turned activist, who describes how a series of Supreme Court decisions culminating in Citizen United v. Federal Election Commission (FEC) and McCutcheon v. FEC have opened the floodgates to money in politics.  This has allowed economic elites to pressure our politicians to serve their interests rather than  those of the general public.  Find out how “We the People” can assert our constitutional sovereignty over powerful special interests, and live up to Abraham Lincoln’s vision of government by the people and for the people!

The meeting will be followed by the League’s Annual Meeting.
