“If we can inspire our leaders to lead on this issue...”
The campaign to be the Democratic nominee is over, but our work is not finished.
Larry Lessig is running for president for one reason:
Fixing democracy can’t wait.
Again and again, what America wants, Congress doesn’t do — because the citizens who fund elections are represented, and the rest of us are not.
Every issue — from climate change to gun safety, from Wall Street reform to defense spending — is blocked by this fundamental problem: Congress does not represent the people.
The solution is to fix our democracy. First.
Pass the Citizen Equality Act of 2017
The Citizen Equality Act of 2017 is a package of reforms that would allow Congress to listen to voters instead of a few funders.
It changes the way we fund campaigns, ends gerrymandering, and protects the right of all citizens to vote.
These reforms will give us — finally — what we were promised: a government of, by, and for the people.
