End Citizens United is all about putting an end to a 2010 Supreme Court Ruling. The case was Citizens United vs F.E.C., and the ruling enables rich corporations to donate incredible amounts of money to politicians. The ruling inched America even closer to being ran by companies rather than elected officials.
End Citizens United campaigns against any politician that accepts big money from big corporations; they support politicians who refuse to accept large amounts of money from rich companies.
End Citizens United was created in early 2015 as a PAC or Political Action Committee. The organization is funded by grassroots donors, proving that grassroots organizations aren’t dead. End Citizens United is made up of ordinary people that want to bring the political power back to the individuals and take it away from corporations.
