Big money, dark money: Common Cause NC

From Common Cause NC: Join Michael Copps on Feb. 21 for lunch and a discussion on "Big money, dark money."

Copps, former Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, will discuss how the rapid consolidation of media corporations and the demise of voter-funded elections pose a great threat to our democracy. Increasingly, control of our telecommunications infrastructure and our political campaigns rest in the hands of a tiny, and sometimes overlapping, group of super-wealthy individuals and corporations.

When: Thursday Feb. 21, noon
Where: Center for Community Leadership training room, Junior League of Raleigh, 711 Hillsborough St., Raleigh, NC
Cost: $10 - includes box lunch
