The dam has burst. Here comes the flood

Eight years ago, the Supreme Court decided to grant corporations the same rights as people under the First Amendment thanks to its Citizens United decision.

The result? The dam has burst. Dark money is flooding our elections. Politicians are increasingly beholden to wealthy special interests.

Join the movement to end Citizens United. Sign our petition.

Donald Trump claimed he wanted to drain the swamp.

Yeah, right.

Trump and his Republican allies are fighting to protect Citizens United at every turn, so their special interest friends can continue to spend wildly to influence elections.

If we're going to give the people their voice back, we have to get the dark, unchecked money out of politics.

Join the movement to end Citizens United. Sign our petition.

This country was founded on a government of, by, and for the people. We can't give that up now.
