A cause dear to my heart: reducing money’s influence on US politics

The great professor, writer, and political activist Lawrence Lessig has organized an ambitious goal to do something about the overwhelming influence of money on US government. https://mayone.us

I agree with Lessig that before we can tackle the issues we most care about — whether that’s climate change, health care, or criminal justice reform — we must make our government better represent the desires of our citizenry. Despite the fact that 90% of Americans support background checks on guns, money’s influence in congress blocks legislation.

Lessig is forming a SuperPAC to end SuperPACs. It’s an ambitious and crazy idea, but if anyone can succeed, it’s Lawrence Lessig and a groundswell of like-minded individuals. Please take a look at https://mayone.us and consider supporting the project.
