Press [1] For Democracy 
Partner Spotlight: Public Citizen’s Shareholder Actions
This Monday at 10 p.m. Eastern
Call (646) 929-2495 to listen & hit [1] to speak

The first in our series of Coffee Party Partner Spotlights, we’ll be joined by Kelly Ngo -- Legislative Assistant with Public Citizen's Congress Watch.  While many are attacking the problem of Big Money in politics by working to overcome the Citizen’s United decision, Kelly is helping to lead a series of actions by Public Citizen -- one of the Coffee Party’s affiliated organizations on the Grass Roots Task Force.  Public Citizen is calling for Starbucks and other corporations to adopt shareholder resolutions calling on these companies to refrain from all election-related spending.  Starbucks already has excellent disclosure policy, but investors and good governance groups want the company to go one step further and take a real stance against corporate money in elections.     

You’ll not only learn about the actions themselves, but how you too can get involved in this crusade against special interest money, the shareholders they hurt, and how you could be a victim of this abuse and not even realize it.  So listen in here, or better yet, call (646) 929-2495.  And when you do, remember to Press [1] for Democracy.
