This month, the Stamp Stampede got the awesome opportunity to participate in the Democracy Spring and Democracy Awakening events. We marched with thousands of activists who came down to D.C. to fight big money in politics and protect ordinary Americans’ voting rights. Our team even got to recruit some stampers to join our grassroots campaign!
At the U.S. Capitol, for a whole week, over 1,000 people were arrested rallying for a democracy that is not flooded with big money influence . Among them, included our very own Head Stamper Ben and his buddy Jerry, who was arrested during Monday’s march. Here they explain to the Washington Post why this act of civil disobedience was so important for them to participate in.
