Inspired by our meeting with Congressman John Sarbanes to support his Government By the People Act that encourages political participation through small donor incentive programs for election funding. 

We joined PIRG staff from around the country to thank Congressman Sarbanes for his work to get big money out of politics and encourage more participation in elections.

We’re all smiles when we get to talk about fixing our democracy.
