Overturn Citizen's United

Let's End Citizens United

The Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision unleashed a flood. It opened the door to unlimited dark money into our politics. We’ve been dealing with the impacts ever since.

But there is hope for change.

800 cities and towns, and 20 states are calling for a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United. That represents 141 million Americans, 46% of the U.S. population. Popular support is overwhleming -- the debate over the idea of overturning Citizens United should be over.

Now it’s time to win, period.

Call your U.S. Representative to ask that they cosponsor a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United. The number is  1-866-937-7983. Take a moment and urge them to pass the Democracy for All Amendment!

Vast majorities of the American people want the government to protect clean water, act on climate, lower drug prices, raise the minimum wage, hold corporate criminals to account, deliver health care to all and more, but action is stalled because those demands conflict with the interests of a corporate class superpowered by the Citizens United decision.

To make our democracy work and ensure our government responds to the will of the people, rather than the megadonors, we must overturn Citizens United.

Call your member of Congress and ask that they cosponsor the Democracy For All constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United. Call them at  1-866-937-7983
