End Citizens United is a political action committee in The United States of America. They were initially founded in response to a decision made by the Supreme Court in 2010. This decision was made in the case of Citizens United versus the Federal election commission. In this case, the Supreme Court found that corporations were entitled to the same rights as individuals. As a result of this decision, campaign contributions were no longer limited. Since the ceasing of campaign contribution limits political donors with deep pockets, have had exponentially more influence on the outcomes of the election cycles. This has caused citizen across the nation to grow more and more concerned about the corruption of their political representatives.
End Citizens United formed itself to serve as a voice for these concerned members of our nation. As one of the most significant political action committees that has formed using grassroots methods they have managed to raise an astonishing $25 million during the first election cycle, they were able to take part in. Not only were they able to raise such a significant amount of money they did so while maintaining full accountability in traceability of their funds. They submitted the $25 million to the federal election commission in order to be audited. They have done so in order to show that they are true to their word.
Now in 2018 End Citizens, United has turned their focus towards the new midterm election cycle. They have pledged to raise an additional $35 million in political campaign contributions. They are on track to do so solely using grassroots campaign finance methods. All of this money will again to be submitted for auditing through the Federal elections commission. They will use this money to fund their mission statement.
End Citizens United has a stated purpose of helping to elect members to Congress in positions of political power that will aid them in reforming political campaign finance policies. By supporting individuals who are in favor of changing political finance laws they hope to speed the pace of development of campaign finance policies.
