Money in Politics: A Barrier to 21st Century Civil Rights?

On June 9, the Brennan Center, Demos, and The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights convened for a timely discussion about how the outsized influence of big money in politics may be a 21st century civil rights issue and what we can do about it. Civil rights leaders, money in politics experts, local and national advocates, and elected officials examined how money creates a barrier to effective campaigning and participation in the electoral process for women and communities of color.
