Join Arizona Advocacy Network Foundation to expose how lobbyists and Big Money buy favor with officials at the our expense. We begin with a special showing of Bill Moyers’ United States of ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Committee), exposing how Big Money uses campaign cash and freebies to buy access to OUR tax dollars for greater profit at the expense of jobs and voter priorities. We then highlight important bills being voted on by the legislature and Congress on Clean Elections, other political anti-corruption/conflict of interests bills, voting rights and election administration. 

 

Common Cause President and CEO Bob Edgar will introduce the short film and

lead a panel and audience discussion afterwards with

 

Sam Wercinski, Arizona Advocacy Network

Rebekah Friend, Arizona AFL-CIO

Frank Piccioli, President of AFSCME Local 2960
