A Look Inside

Wednesday, November 30, 2016

Co-sponsored with the Piper Fund, Democracy Alliance and Victory 2021

This funder briefing discussed money in politics and the results of the November elections. We explored the role that special interest and dark money played in influencing the outcomes and received updates from the field on the results of the various municipal and statewide ballot campaigns. We also discussed what this post-election landscape means for campaigns and reform opportunities going forward.
