28th Amendment Roadshow

28th Amendment Roadshow

Sunday, May 4, 12-5 p.m.
Hoffman Hall

Hosted by OSPIRG and sponsored by the Oregon Democracy Coalition, the 28th Amendment National Roadshow at Portland State University Hoffman Hall on Sunday, May 4, will address the impact of money and corporate constitutional rights on the American political system. The show will feature policy experts such as noted journalist John Nichols, author of Dollarocracy, Dave Rosenfeld of OSPIRG, Kate Titus of Common Cause Oregon, David Delk of the Alliance for Democracy, Lloyd Marbet, democracy activist, Michele Sutter of Money Out Voters In, among others.

The afternoon event will also offer a sneak preview screening of the brilliant new feature documentary film Pay 2 Play: Democracy’s High Stakes with director John Wellington Ennis in attendance, music by recording artist Catherine Feeny, and an organizing training session with Amanda Knief, author of The Citizen Lobbyist.

Four years after the Citizens United v. FEC ruling, and two weeks after the McCutcheon v. FEC decision, which struck down aggregate limits on political contributions, this issue is at a national boiling point. With 16 states and over 500 municipalities calling for a constitutional amendment and 150 members of Congress in support, 2014 promises to be a pivotal year in the attempt to restore democracy to the American people.
