    On October 15, 2015, the Hayti Heritage Center in Durham, North Carolina hosted a special forum on “Money In Politics as a Civil Rights Issue."

    The event was held in partnership with Free Speech For People, Democracy North Carolina , The Institute For Southern Studies, North Carolina Voters For Clean Elections, Southern Coalition for Social Justice, and the American Constitution Society law student chapters at Duke Law School, NCCU School of Law, and UNC School of Law.

    Big money interests increasingly dominate our election process and threaten the basic promise of American democracy: political equality for all. Like the poll tax of the past, today’s campaign finance system operates as a barrier to equal and meaningful participation in the political process. As such, money in politics should be viewed from a civil rights perspective

    Speakers include:

    Nicole Austin-Hillery of Brennan Center for Justice
    North Carolina Supreme Court Justice Cheri Beasley
    Professor Guy-Uriel Charles of Duke Law School
    Chris Kromm of the Institute for Southern Studies
    North Carolina State Senator Floyd McKissick, Jr.

    This conversation will be moderated by Bob Hall, Executive Director of Democracy North Carolina.
