Founded on March 1st, 2015, The End Citizen United movement is a Political Action Committee financed by grassroots sponsors. The movement is dedicated to confronting disastrous issues of Citizen United and improving its campaign finance system. According to End Citizens United, the 2010 Supreme Court decision completely transformed the scope of American elections. The decision further created a legal basis for the ideology that corporations are people and made way for special interest and billionaires to spend the untraceable and unlimited amount of money in United States elections. The committee motto is ‘It Is the Time to Fight Back.’
The committee went ahead to state that there was no transparency and accountability at all in the elections. The End Citizen United mentioned billionaires like Koch brothers and other organizations that are trying to influence political power in their favor and still there more issues that the movement is concerned with.
End Citizens United emphasizes that they are united to show voters, candidates, elected officials and the media that the grassroots people are fighting back with power against the increasing influence of billionaires and wealthy organizations to buy the elections in the United States. This will be an important step to building a bigger coalition that will be working towards campaigning for financial reforms and pushing lawmakers to take necessary actions and steps.
End Citizens United mission is to end the influence of billionaires and wealthy organizations in elections and fix the rigged political system. The movement intends to this by electing officials who will engineer reforms in campaign finances during elections. Secondly, the movement will pass state ballot measures. Finally, the movement intends to elevate this issue to become a national conversation so that every citizen can be aware of the issues affecting elections. End Citizens United will also work in collaboration with finance reform champions to overturn Citizen United so that they can together bring an end to the undisclosed and unlimited money in the United States politics.
End Citizens United will achieve its mission by electing pro-reforms officials, making the issue of money in politics as a national conversation, partnering with ballot measures movements to pass pro-reforms policies in each state and utilizing grassroots membership to control political power against money in politics.
End Citizens United is particularly supporting Democrats who are leading in opposing the movement. End Citizens United emphasizes that it stands up and supports candidates who are constantly attacked by mega-donors and corporate special interests and their super PACs networks and dirty money groups. End Citizens United hopes to bring change in the Democratic Party leadership. On the other side, Republicans and independent candidates agree that there is undisclosed political spending that affects elections but Republicans are fighting the destructive Supreme Court decision in Congress.
