Common Ground for Texans says
As you know, we've been talking about campaign finance and electoral reform for years. The corrupting influence of money is one of our major areas of focus. But how does big money influence our lives outside of the ballot box?

We're excited to be looking into this question at our next meeting this Saturday. We'll hear from Bob Libal, executive director of Grassroots Leadership, a group working to end for-profit prisons in America. They've recently published the report Payoff: How Congress Ensures Private Prison Profit with an Immigrant Detention Quota.

We're also thrilled to be joined by representatives from the Workers Defense Project, a local nonprofit dedicated to supporting low-income workers by defending them against wage theft and improving their working conditions. Rose Levy and Maria Duque will share their experiences and perspective with us.

We hope you can join us for an illuminating discussion on the connections between money in politics, private prisons, immigration reform, and other important issues that affect everyday people.
