#OurDemocracy Deep Dives Lobbying Unmasked
Powerful industries like gambling, mining and tobacco spend millions of dollars employing lobbyists to meet with politicians in secret.
The use of professional lobbyists is a powerful tool in the broader scheme of influence. It’s shrouded in secrecy and allows big corporations to gain access to decision-makers in a way that isn’t afforded to everyday people.
Want to know more about the shadowy world of industry lobbyists?
Join us for our next Democracy Deep Dives webinar Lobbying Unmasked.
Joining us will be Rex Patrick (Transparency Warrior and former Senator) and David Mejia-Canales (Senior Lawyer – Human Rights Law Centre, former political staffer).
