Join State Policy Network and litigators from four top public interest litigation centers and policy organizations to hear about current lawsuits that would right the balance between the taxpayer and labor unions and protect our constitutional rights. These cases would end forced dues to labor unions for public sector workers, change opting-out of union membership to an opt-in requirement, level the playing field between taxpayers and unions in campaign donation limits, end abusive and wasteful practices, and much more. You will not want to miss this opportunity to hear the latest on these cases that are critical to the freedom movement.
