KZOO McCutcheon Rapid Response Event

Thursday April 3rd 530 Rally to raise awareness about U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the case McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission. In a nutshell, if the court rules badly in McCutcheon, it would pretty much do for individuals what Citizens United did for corporations. Specifically, those who can afford to do so could directly contribute up to $3.6 million per election cycle to a single party and its candidates. Join us in a rapid response event as we hold a rally two days after the ruling.
