Here are the latest updates FAN has been working on within our Faithful Democracy Money in Politics Campaign. This Spring, two events will help to propel our efforts forward.
Money in Politics
It's time to get money out!
On January 21, 2010 the U.S. Supreme Court opened the gates for a flood of corporate money into our political system. By reversing decades of campaign finance law with the landmark ruling Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission and through related changes in campaign finance laws, we have deeply undermined American democracy.
FAN has taken the lead on an interfaith coalition, "Faithful Democracy" looking at the issues of money in politics. The coalition looks at the issue from both a faith and legislative perspective, using the issues of climate change, gun violence prevention, and immigration/private prisons as catalysts.
