For every 1000 signatures, NationofChange will send a letter to Congress demanding that they create a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United.

In 2010 the United States Supreme Court voted 5-4 in the case Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. The ruling said that freedom of speech prohibited the government from restricting independent political expenditures by a nonprofit corporation. The principles articulated by the Supreme Court in the case have also been extended to for-profit corporations, labor unions and other association, opening the door for dark money and the essential purchase of elections.

The case of Citizens United has essentially credit Dark Money, the funds given to nonprofit organizations that can receive unlimited donations from corporations, individuals, and unions, and spend funds to influence elections, but are not required to disclose their donors.

The Supreme Court's decisions in Citizens United and other cases opened the gates to a flood of billions of dollars that threatens to undermine our democracy.

What we need now is a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United.

Sign the petition to tell Congress to create a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United.
