Lawrence Lessig will speak about the corruption at the heart of American politics, caused by the dependence of candidates on funding from the tiniest percentage of citizens. That’s the argument at the core of his life long work about Democracy. Fundamentally cross-partisan, and incredibly hopeful, Mr. Lessig conveys a roadmap for a democracy we could reclaim.

Will Durst, who will be opening the event, is acknowledged by peers and press alike as one of the premier political satirists in the country. The New York Times calls him “possibly the best political comic in the country.”

Join in this timely TEDx event. It promises to be an inspiring and even humorous look at the Future of Democracy
