Clean Elections Texas says
Join us in Dallas to be part of a nationwide mobilization to demand action to create a democracy of, by and for the people. We will mobilize to call for solutions that protect the people’s right to vote and prevent our voices from being drowned out by big money. We will demand an end to a system dominated by corporations and the wealthy, a system that prevents our country from addressing its greatest challenges – from inequality to climate change, from providing health care to all to ensuring everyone is paid a living wage.

This nonpartisan rally will include speakers, such as Arthur Fleming, NAACP; David Griggs, Sierra Cub; Mark York, AFL-CIO, Liz Wally, Clean Elections Texas, as well as.activities, voter rgistration and game, sign-making, Stamp Stampede, tables with information and a march to Lee Park.

What are we asking for?

Overturn U.S. Supreme Court rulings like Citizens United that have allowed billionaires and big business to spend literally without limit in their attempt to take over our elections. Support small donor/public funding of elections and return the power to the voters.

Demand that Congress do its constitutional duty and commit to a fair and timely confirmation process for the next Supreme Court justice. DO YOUR JOB!

Fully restore the landmark 1965 Voting Rights Act that was gutted by the Supreme Court’s recent Shelby County decision, enabling states to reinstitute discriminatory Jim Crow-era laws. Support the Voter Empowerment Act of 2015.

Supporting organization include: American Constitutional Society; Clean Elections Texas; CompassionateDFW; CWA 6215; Dallas AFL-CIO; Dallas Peace and Justice Center; Lambda Legal; League of Women Voters of Dallas; NAACP Dallas; North TexasLULAC; Public Citizen of Texas; Sierra Cub Texas; Social Action Council, 1st Unitarian Church of Dallas;

This event is nonpartisan and we request no candidate nor political party signs or clohing to divert attention from the broadly accepted messages we are emphasizing with this event. Thank you.
