Overturn Citizens United. Save Democracy.


The massive influx of money into our political system, made possible by rulings like the one in Citizens United v. FEC, has created an unprecedented crisis. We have seen an explosion of outside spending, as well as a glut of spending by tax-exempt "dark money" organizations that don't have to disclose their donors.
Background:
Open Secrets: Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission
Demos: Election Spending 2012
Reuters Poll: Most Americans Think Too Much Money in Politics
Senator Udall’s resolution, S.J.Res. 19 with cosponsors list.

The conflation of money with free speech has created a political environment wherein money routinely drowns out other voices. In the 2012 election cycle, just 132 donors giving at least $1 million each were responsible for 60.4% of all the money Super PACs raised.

Today, three-quarters of Americans agree that money has become a corrupting influence over our political process. A Constitutional Amendment to fix the problem is gaining support in the U.S. Senate.  Please sign this petition:

Money is not speech, corporations are not people, and our political system will not work if we don’t overturn Citizens United. We demand that the U.S. Senate pass this Constitutional Amendment (S.J.Res. 19) on behalf of democracy.
