The Banta Center Presents: Corporations, Campaign Finance and the 2012 Election

Learn about important 2012 election issues from local professors and political experts

REDLANDS Oct. 12, 2012 - How will the 2012 election be different from previous election cycles? In one word, the answer is money. Observers maintain that since the landmark Citizens United v.

Join the Banta Center for Business, Ethics and Society for a timely discussion examining the social and political impacts of corporate spending, political action committees and current campaign finance law on the 2012 election.
