Money in Politics:
The impact of unchecked campaign financing
and what we can do about it

7pm, Wednesday, April 10, 2019

University of Akron - Olin Hall, Room 124
160 E. Buchtel Ave, Akron, OH 443
04

ABOUT THE PROGRAM: Itís been nine years since The Supreme Court issued its Citizens United Ruling. While we know campaign financing has increased exponentially, what we donít know is where all the moneyís coming from.  Dark money, money from non-profit political action committees (PACs) that do not require source disclosures, has become more prevalent in state and local office campaigns.  What can we do, if anything, to shed light and stem the flow.
