As I cast my vote today in California I tried to imagine a November election that could truly make a world of difference.
How do we get there?
Global Exchange’s Elect Democracy campaign couldn’t have arrived at a better moment. Grounded in a global solidarity and focused on the belly of the beast at home, our campaign targets Wall Street’s dangerous takeover of our own democracy. These days, Congress doesn’t regulate Wall Street: Wall Street regulates Congress.
As global citizens, and as US voters, we must get big banks out of our elections.
As election season heats up, our feisty new Elect Democracy campaign will be raising a ruckus about Finance, Insurance, and Real Estate (FIRE) sector campaign contributions to Congress. It is up to us to reclaim and protect what’s ours; it’s time to show the 1% what democracy really looks like.
Sign our petition today and tell Wall Street: “Our democracy is not for sale!” Help us reach 10,000 signatures by July 4th.
Together, let’s Elect Democracy for a change. Here’s how you can help:
- Sign our petition to Wall Street banksters.
- Join our Elect Democracy action and alerts list.
- Learn more about Elect Democracy and big money in politics.
Global Exchange is ready to take on this challenge because we know what’s at stake.
I’m honored to join the Global Exchange family in this powerful historical moment. Worldwide movements for justice, peace, and democracy have soared to challenge corporate power. This election season it’s time to get money out of politics as we march toward a better world.
Democracy takes all of us. Take action today and join our Elect Democracy action and alerts email list to help spread the word as we share facts, action, and inspiration.
With respect and solidarity,
Hillary V Lehr
