End Citizens United, located in Washington, D.C., is a Political Action Committee that was founded on March 1st, 2015. Their current president and executive director is Tiffany Muller, former Deputy Political Director of the Democratic Senatorial Committee and who also served as Chief of Staff for two members of Congress.
They have a mission that involves removing big money in politics with the goal especially being the removal of a group called the Big Money 20. This is a group of Republican politicians that accept large sums of money and donations and don’t want to reform campaign financing. End Citizens United wants to overturn Citizens United, a U.S. constitutional law that deals with the regulations of political campaign spending by various organizations and to fix what they say is a rigged political system.
End Citizens United wants to accomplish this in the following ways:
1. Making it a national priority to raise the issue of money in politics.
2. Support and elect candidates who are in favor of reform.
3. Have members who are ordinary grassroots people to gain political power to
deal with the money issues in politics.
4. Work with various campaigns to pass pro-reform laws in states.
