ProfilePic.jpg

  

On the Oct 27th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Lawrence Lessig, Harvard professor and co-founder of Mayday, a Super PAC fighting big money in politics. Lessig says Congress will never be able to solve problems until money doesn’t rule. So what will it take to pass campaign finance reform? What’s the status of efforts across the country? And where are politicians talking about this issue? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar

Guests:

Lawrence Lessig, professor and director of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University, and co-founder of Mayday PAC
