Learn about anti-corruption act

Posted

The Jefferson Political Action Taskforce has drafted a bill called the American Anti-Corruption Act, and citizen groups are working to get it passed.

The bill is intended to redefine the meaning of corruption and end the “pay for play” system that rules Washington, D.C. It is an attempt to clean up politics after the 2010 Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court, according to the Jefferson Political Action Taskforce.

Learn about the bill and how to help it become law at an even, 1-2:30 p.m. Nov. 4 at the Lakewood Library, 10200 W. 20th Ave., Lakewood. Space is limited; register by searching for “Learn About the American Anti-Corruption Act” at EventBrite.com.

An action workshop will follow presentations on “What is the American Anti-Corruption Act?” by Represent.Us; “How special interests commandeer our legislators,” by Common Cause; and “The AACA is effective and constitutional,” by Rep. Joe Salazar.

This is a nonpartisan event. Learn more at Represent.us and Anticorruptionact.org.

Email info@actiontaskforce.org, go to actiontaskforce.org or text AACA to 444-999 for details on getting involved.
