Dreaming and working for a real democracy after Citizens United ruling: (opinion)

January 21, 2015

It's a cruel irony that the very week our nation celebrates the life and work for justice and equality of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., our country also marks mark the 5th anniversary of the Citizens United v. FEC Supreme Court decision that diminished political justice and equality.
