Recent American elections have been marked by two disturbing trends: a flood of non-candidate spending in our elections, and voters choosing in greater and greater numbers not to participate at the ballot box. Public financing of campaigns is one way to help ensure the voices of all the people are heard, by restoring voters’ faith in our elections and getting them back to the polls.

Join the Brennan Center for Justice, the New York City Campaign Finance Board, and the Committee for Economic Development for a day-long conference to explore public financing solutions and reforms. Elected officials, campaign finance experts, academics, and advocates will discuss how public campaign finance programs can combat low voter participation and civic engagement in society today.

**Attendees will receive 4.5 CLE credits in the Areas of Professional Practice. Credit will be both transitional and non-transitional.**
