Join us for an Intefaith Congressional Briefing on Money in Politics on Wednesday, June 11th

Money in Politics Congressional Briefing Flyer(click flyer to enlarge)

As you may know, FAN has been part of an interfaith coalition working on the issue of Money in Politics from a legislative perspective for about a year now. With the recent McCutcheon Supreme Court decision, and the efforts to move the Udall Amendment in the Senate, the issue is once again front and center. So we’re hosting a Congressional Briefing on the topic with Rep. Sarbanes, Rep. Petri and an interfaith coalition.

Who: Members of Congress, Auburn Seminary and an Interfaith Coalition of D.C. based advocacy groups

What: Congressional Briefing on Money in Politics from a Faith Perspective

Where: Cannon House Office Building, Room 421

When: Wednesday June 11th 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Auburn Seminary in New York recently wrote a report on the topic, and we’re happy to have the author, Rabbi Justus Baird, join us. The briefing, a bi-partisan event, will also include opening remarks from Rep. John Sarbanes and Rep. Tom Petri.

While the issue of money in politics may not be an obvious issue for the faith community, we’ve found that while doing advocacy work on core issues such as immigration reform, climate, and gun violence prevention, major roadblocks have been put in place. That’s why we’re examining the root of the issue.

We hope that you’ll be able to join us as we try to educate and change the hearts and minds of Congress!

  1. Hi Jason, Writing to you from Roma! This is a great idea. I would love to attend but won’t be back in time. I have been meaning to write you and apologize for mistakenly calling you Jim when we met on the steps of the Hart building last week: my age catching up with me. Best wishes, Ben
