"Faithful Democracy" marks 10 years of Citizens United. Starting at the steps of the Methodist Building and processing to section 8 in front of the Capitol.

Speakers include: Sister Simone Campbell (Network)
Rabbi Jonah Pesner (Religious Action Center)
Rev. Jimmie Hawkins (Presbyterian Church USA)
Rev. Dr. Leslie Copeland-Tune (National Council of Churches)
Rep. Ted Deutch (FL)

10 years have passed since Citizens United tragically opened the floodgates for corporate and dark money to infiltrate the political process.

We wish to elevate the distorting and corrosive impact that increased PAC and large donors have had on the integrity of our democratic systems.

The faith community gathers to lament the current state of politics and to call for renewal of our democracy by ending the outsized influence of money in our political system
