POTUS 1: The Next Fight for Democracy – Lawrence Lessig

Event Held Monday, April 29, 7:00 – 8:00 p.m.

at First Parish in Concord, Massachusetts

Sponsored by Reclaim Our Democracy.

Is there a way to make the 2020 election about something more than simply electing a new President? Can it become an election that unites America? Can we leverage what unifies America, and get an (unrigged) democracy that could work?

Professor, lawyer, and political activist Lawrence Lessig presented his thoughts on what we need to do to unify America and reclaim our democracy.

He is the author of several recent books including America Compromised and Republic, Lost: How Money Corrupts Our Congress – and a Plan to Stop it.

Lessig’s group Equal Citizens has rated the 2020 Presidential candidates on their support for democracy reform.
