End Citizens United was founded in March of 2015. The committee is funded by grassroots donors and is a Political Action Committee. The committee’s main goal is to be able to counter the effects of the Citizens United group. The committee is willing to fight and do whatever it takes to overturn Citizens United.
End Citizens United mainly supports Democrats that supports the fight to End Citizens United. The committee stands up for citizens that are getting attacked by other corporate interests. The main reason the committee supports Democrats is due to the fact that it is the Democrats that is leading the fight against Citizens United.
End Citizens United’s greatest strength is said to come from the higher power of the grassroots activist. The committee took care of their lastest filling on July 20, 2017 with the Federal Elections Commission. The group has stated that they couldn’t be happier to be able to be funded by their thousands of grassroots supporters. This is just the beginning for the group though. The board of End Citizens United is formed mainly of top leaders who’s main goal is to be able to overturn Citizens United.
Along with their other goals End Citizens United is also committed to driving big money out of politics. In just the first three months of this year End Citizens United was able to raise over $4 million. They hope to be able to raise $35 million before the 2018 Congress elections. This makes more than $25 million than what was raised in 2016 by PAC for the elections. It was stated that more than 100,000 people helped contribute towards the PAC in the first quarter of this year. Over 40,000 of the contributors was said to be first time givers. PAC’s average contribution for this year was $12 a person. The End Citizens United Committee has urged its contributors to give $500,000 that would in return go towards helping the campaign of Democrat Jon Ossoff. He is known as being a first time political candidate located in Georgia. Ossoff was able to surprise the political establishment by being able to raise over $4 million dollars. I think it is safe to say that End Citizens United is going to continuing fight for the rights of all citizens. They hope that in time to overturn the Citizens United group and come out on top.
