Mourning in America for DEMOCRACY - A March & Rally in SF

Join our spirited march and rally on the fifth anniversary of the DEATH of DEMOCRACY by the Supreme Court's "Citizens United" decision allowing special interests and big donors to strangle democracy. 


Hundreds of activists and dozens of grassroots organizations from across California are organizing to SPEAK OUT, with one courageous voice, and reverse this decision! Wear black. (Black armbands will be available.) Some signs will be available and bring your own.
