— End Citizens United (@StopBigMoney) October 11, 2018
The Political Action Committee, End Citizens United is funded by donors to overturn Citizens United by electing campaign finance reformers. The decision made by the Supreme Court about “corporations are people” greatly changed the Citizens United vs. F.E.C politics. Wealthy and special interest groups spend cash on US elections which End Citizens United feels that it’s a way of buying elections.
End Citizens United was established on March 1st, 2015 to stop big political funding groups that are created with ulterior motives through funding of elections. Despite ECU funded by grassroots donations, the committee is committed to stop the activities of Citizen United, see pro-reform candidates elected and ensure the money used in politics remain transparent to the public. After launching its operations in August 2015, End Citizens raised $2 million from small donors, and according to the group’s Communications Director Richard Carbo, the group entire cycle is expected to raise approximately $25 million to $30 million or more. Read more news about the group on USA Today.
To date, End Citizens United has supported various pro-reform Democrats and critics have a story to tell. Even though many independent and Republican voters agree that undisclosed political financing is not controlled, the Congress Republican leadership is standing unshaken in the manner of overturning the disastrous ruling made by the Supreme Court on January 21, 2010.
After the court’s decision, the elections activities were dramatically changed after the ruling in favor of Citizens United which puts individual American citizens and corporations on equal footing. Hence, both had the same power and right to work and donate to political campaigns. As a result, corporations have been donating billions of dollars without disclosing the source and motives of their support. Currently, ECU is supporting various democrats in their election races this year. Two of these are Conor Lamb and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who have promised to desert corporate PAC contributions on the table.
The End Citizens United website shows the group’s activities, their latest news, candidates who want reforms in finance and a donation page. Also, there are details on how to resists the activities of Citizens United whereby individuals can start their groups in social media and help in spreading the pro-reform candidates’ message.
