In 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in a case called Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission that corporations have a “right” to spend unlimited money influencing elections.
Corporations are not people. Democracy is for people.
We are building a movement to pass an amendment to counteract the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Citizens United.

The vast majority of Americans oppose the unlimited secret corporate money gushing into our elections.
The next step is getting most members of Congress on board with disclosure of political spending, a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission and other significant reforms to undo the corporate takeover of our democracy.
Call your representative or senators today and set up a meeting this month to urge them to support a constitutional amendment and other reforms to thwart the corporate takeover of our democracy.
