Waylon & Ben of Ben & Jerry’s: how to stamp out Citizens United!

Join Elephant Academy

Our country, here in the US of A, has many problems. We also are wonderful, in many ways—which only serves to highlight the problems we could untangle.

At the root of most of our problems is one monster: money in politics. Money undermines the rule of the citizens, the power of our vote, and twists our representatives’ work toward the powerful. It’s called Citizens United.

And we could undo it, if we cared to.

I just talked with Ben of Ben & Jerry’s about how to do just that. It’s easy! Stamp it!

 

Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis:

Waylon welcomes one of his idols, Ben Cohen, co-founder of a little ice cream company you may have heard of, Ben & Jerry’s, into our HQ in Boulder, Colorado for a live discussion on entrepreneurship, activism, and why he’s running around the country stamping money.

Check out Stamp Stampede, an organization aiming to stamp money out of politics.
