Date

"Money Out/Voters In" - The Role of Money and Third Party Politics Today
Featuring Dan Cantor of the Working Families Party and Liz Kennedy of Demos. Moderated by Prof. Kate Shaw of Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law.

So called "third party" political movements have played critical roles throughout U.S. history, from the abolitionist movement to the women's suffrage movement. However those voices and demands for rights and recognition were only reluctantly and meagerly adopted by the established political-judicial system.

This panel discussion will focus on the role of power and money in elections and politics in the United States today. We will discuss the role of Super Pacs and the impact of Citizens United with it's long line of predecessor cases. A unique focus will be provided on local democracy and the role of political third parties and voices outside the political mainstream.
Snacks and drinks will be provided.

Sponsored by Cardozo National Lawyers Guild (NLG).
