Target: Members of Congress
Goal: Pass an amendment to the US Constitution overturning the Supreme Court decisions like Citizens United that have opened the floodgates of unlimited money in our elections.
It’s urgent that we save our democracy from the scourge of big money unleashed by Supreme Court decisions like Citizens United v. FEC. Since that 2010 decision, increasing — and staggering — amounts of money have been poured into our elections by corporate special interests and billionaire ideologues, drowning out the voices of ordinary voters.
Generations of Americans have amended our Constitution numerous times and now it’s our generation’s turn. It’s time to take back our democracy for the PEOPLE.
Tell Congress to pass an amendment to the Constitution that will undo the harm of Citizens United and related cases!
Members of Congress:
The Supreme Court’s decisions in cases like Citizens United v. FEC and McCutcheon v. FEC threaten to tear apart the fabric of our democracy by granting powerful corporations and wealthy donors unlimited influence in our political process. These decisions mark a drastic departure from previous law and our core values as a nation, and must be met with an appropriate response.
I join the millions of Americans calling on you to support and pass the Democracy For All constitutional amendment to ensure lawmakers have the authority to protect the voice of the voter from getting drowned out by big money, and place common sense limits on corporate, special interest and big donor influence in elections without delay.
