"We must enact
campaign finance reform."
–Gov. Cuomo in his State of State

This is one of those moments we're proud to be New Yorkers:

Campaign finance reform is a very real possibility in New York State this year. [1]

In his State of State at the end of January, Governor Cuomo inspired us with an impassioned call to fix our democracy. [2]

This is our moment to unite in creativity, solidarity, and action so, with our partners, we're doubling down on our faith-based organizing.

Next week, please take the first step with us and join a webinar of faith groups organized by Common Cause, our partner in work to get money out of politics.

Too many of our congregants, supporters, friends and family are hurt by unlimited money in our politics.

This is our calling – to serve the vision of wholeness for our communities and heal our democracy.

And this is our moment – support for campaign finance reform is at an all-time high in NY. [3]

The policies to solve this have been researched and analyzed, written and proposed.

What we need now is people power: to rally our fellow New Yorkers, open their hearts and minds to this call for justice, and plan strategic action to support reform.

You're invited to join the webinar where we'll build concrete steps for action together.

We need to ressurect a democracy that provides disaster relief, social services, education, or other pressing needs for our neighbors – a democracy that works for voters, not just those with the resources to fund campaigns.

I hope you will join us, Auburn Seminary, Common Cause, Occupy Faith, the Muslim Consultative Network and the Labor-Religion Coalition of New York State on the webinar.
