Next week my colleague Rick Claypool and I will be hosting the second in a series of online conversations with Public Citizen’s activists.
Don’t sweat it if you missed the first one, you can get up to speed by watching it below:
In our first conversation we discussed what makes Public Citizen unique, and we detailed the Congress Watch division’s role within the organization and the issues we work on. We also laid out how, through the work of activists like you, we were able to take the STOCK Act from an aspiration to reality.
On Wednesday, July 17 at 8 p.m. Eastern, we plan to take the conversation a step further and fill you in on the pieces of legislation we’re pushing for right now, and how you can help us move the ball forward.
We know your time is valuable, so we’ve picked out Congress Watch’s top priorities and legislative campaigns so we can brief you on the things that you can have a real impact on in the coming weeks. If you want to get involved in the fight for health care for all, justice in the financial system, a transparent democracy or access to the courts, then this is the place to be.
Think of it this way: if you like the information and actions that Rick and I bring to your inbox each week (sign up here if you’re not yet a subscriber), then this conversation is the perfect place to get more involved locally, and have an impact nationally.
I’m really excited about this initiative, and I hope that by giving Public Citizen’s activists even more information and tools, we’ll be able to channel the power we have as ordinary citizens into big wins for the public interest.
We’ve got a great game plan, and we’re ready to share it with you.
