Two great events for your calendar

Raleigh will play host to two excellent events next week that will shine a light on the efforts by big money to purchase our government.

On Tuesday evening February 19, the national executive director of Common Cause, Bob Edgar, will be in town to lead a discussion of the growing and pernicious influence of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). The event will take place at Pullen Memorial Baptist Church, 1801 Hillsborough Street at 7:00 pm. RSVP by contacting NC Common Cause Director Bob Phillips at 919-836-0027 or bphillips@commoncause.org.

Two days later, at 12 noon on February 21, NC Policy Watch will team up with Common Cause for a special Crucial Conversation luncheon:

Big money, dark money: The threat posed to our democracy by media consolidation and secretly-funded elections – Featuring the former Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, Dr. Michael Copps.

The luncheon will take place at the Center for Community Leadership Training Room at the Junior League of Raleigh Building, 711 Hillsborough St. at the corner of Hillsborough and St. Mary’s Streets).
