Last month, we introduced you to #GivingTuesday, a national day of giving that takes place the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, December 3. In honor of #GivingTuesday, we’re taking some time to reflect on our work over the past year. Last week, we shared a snapshot of some of the work we’ve done to defend the environment.
Now, we’re taking a look at our work to reform the nation’s campaign finance system and the work we’ve been up to protect our elections system and keep big money out of politics:
The League believes that it is essential to stop the flood secret money and to let the sunshine in. We support enacting effective disclosure legislation to end the millions of dollars in secret money that influence our federal elections and corrupt our political system. The League is active at all levels of government to protect our political system from big-money corruption and to ensure that the voices of voters across the country can be heard.
#GivingTuesday is propelled by those who believe that passion and commitment can make a difference. On December 3rd, we ask that you think of the League’s work as you reflect on the need to protect our democracy and preserve the integrity of our elections.
