In the tradition of Granny D, an activist who in 1999, at the age of 88, walked from Los Angeles to DC wearing a sign that said “campaign finance reform,” this group of New Hampshire citizens led by Rootstrikers founder Lawrence Lessig kicked off their campaign in January with a 185-mile march across the state. They hope to put an end to what they see as a legal system of corruption in our democracy by asking every candidate at every presidential event between now and the 2016 primary one question: “How will YOU end this system of corruption in Washington?”

By asking this question again and again in their rallies and via the Internet — and by encouraging Americans across the country to join them — they hope to make campaign finance reform the central issue of the 2016 campaign. Visit NHRebellion.org to learn more and get involved.
