March Against Money in Politics

Led by Prof. Lawrence Lessig, on April 2nd, more than one hundred people have signed up to march from Philadelphia to Washington, DC, to protest money in politics.  Over the next 11 days, some plan to walk the entire 140 miles to the capital.

The marchers’ arrival in Washington, DC, will coincide with a larger, related event, Democracy Awakening, calling on elected officials to take a series of actions related to voting rights and campaign finance reform, including voicing their support for a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United. Democracy Awakening includes a wide array of groups ranging from the NAACP to unions like the SEIU and environmental groups such as Greenpeace. From April 11-16, they plan to bring their message to Congress with meetings, demonstrations and acts of civil disobedience.
