Since 2010, when the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Citizens United, outside special interests and corporations have been able to pour money, with virtually no oversight, into federal elections all across the country.

If you think the people, individuals, should wield power in our elections, tell Congress that it’s time to end Citizens United, now.
