Events with the Princeton Gerrymandering Project / Electoral Innovation Lab

The Electoral Innovation Lab at Princeton University presents a Reform Forum: A Talk with Jeff Clements, titled “American Promise and the National Movement to Reform Corrupt Big Money Politics.”
Friday, July 30th, 1:30PM ET

This event is open to the general public. To get the Zoom link for this event, please RSVP to jrhode@princeton.edu

Jeff Clements is the president of American Promise, a leader in the nationwide, cross-partisan movement for a constitutional amendment to limit the influence of big money in politics. In this talk, Jeff will demonstrate why such an amendment is so urgently needed, from the concentration of political power in the hands of the wealthy elite, to the negativity and misinformation that plagued the 2020 elections.
