Get Big Money Out of Politics!
The next Citizens United is here! Big money is corrupting our democratic process, allowing mega corporations and other special interest groups to buy and influence elections and the agenda of our elected officials. Any day the U.S. Supreme Court could issue its ruling in the case McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, commonly called "Citizens United 2.0." The Supreme Court's decision in Citizens United (2010) made it so mega corporations and other special interest groups can contribute unlimited amounts of money in elections. If McCutcheon (2014) wins it would make things much, much worse. McCutcheon would allow any individual who could afford it to contribute $3.6 million.
America is not for sale!! Stand up for democracy. Let's make our voices heard. Join us in a national rally of over 120 towns across the country to end big money in politics.
These protests will be held on the same day that the Supreme Court issues its ruling on McCutcheon. We don't know the exact date of the protest because the Supreme Court does not announce its ruling in advance, hence this will be a "rapid response" protest. Possible dates include the following: March 25, 26; April 1, 2, 7, 22, 23, 29, 30; May 5, 19, 27; or possibly as late as June. The protest is 4:00-6:30 PM. Come when you can. You can bring a sign or make one at the event. Please bring a friend and spread the word!Please sign up so we'll know approximately how many folks will be attending, and so we can notify you the day of the ruling and protest. If you have any questions, please notify Andrea your local host: firstname.lastname@example.org.
