End Citizens United is determined in using their platform to bring change to the election process by transforming campaign finance. The political action committee (PAC) wants their grass roots efforts to make this change become a reality. Their actions have already made a massive impact.
After the organization formed in March 2015, politicians began to take notice. End Citizens United has been very vocal, along with their supporters, that campaign finance reform will require a balance of power in the political system. Politicians are now aware that going forward elections will have an undercurrent of campaign finance reform for the voters’ decision. End Citizen’s United has already become a major player in the political process, and they’re just getting started.
After receiving over $2 million with small donations from supporters of their mission, End Citizen’s United became a force aimed at seeing that transparency in the political process becomes the truth of the election process. They will put an end to the notion that “corporations are people” and corporate billionaires having no accountability for their political contributions.
End Citizens United believes when the U.S. Supreme Court rendered its decision in 2010, with Citizens United vs. F.E.C., they created an imbalance of power for transparency. Their position on that decision is that it opens the door for many special interest groups and corporations to write their own ticket into the political process. End Citizens United believes that their responsibility, on behalf of the U.S. voters, is to bring accountability to politicians and corporations.
The mission of the organization is simple; to combat large money contributions in politics and dismantle what they consider is a rigged system. It is End Citizens United ultimate goal to have the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision overturned.
The actions taken by the End Citizens United team is to assure the voters that they elect pro-reform candidates. Using an increasing number of petitioners, the PAC has made it a priority to raise the issue of money in politics and using those memberships to demonstrate their political power on this issue.
The organization has the potential to receive over 4 million additional petitioners by the end of 2017, after partnering with Ready PAC, formerly “Ready For Hillary” PAC. Ready PAC has entrusted End Citizens United with an email list that will increase their support. End Citizens United continues to reach out to voters and they’ve received enormous support for their mission.
End Citizens United’s fight for U.S. voters has been an incredible conquest in a challenging political season. Their ultimate victory will be determined by getting democratic support in key elections. The organization believes that meaningful change can happen with democratic leadership and so far they appear to be well on their way to winning.
