Organizer: Campaign Legal Center
Disclosure requirements have long been considered central to the free and transparent functioning of our democracy, but our democracy is modernizing, and our disclosure laws are not keeping up.
From the 2014 election cycle to 2018, digital political spending increased by an astonishing 2,400%. Meanwhile, federal law governing transparency requirements for political ads hasn't been updated since 2002.

Fortunately, there are several legislative solutions that can restore transparency to digital advertising. Join us to learn more about why digital ad regulation is important and what we can do to fix it.
