End Citizens United is a grass-roots based Political Action Committee, PAC. Its primary goal is to advocate for election finance reform. This is in response to a 2010 Supreme Court decision in favor of Citizens United. The ruling allowed corporations, special interest groups as well as influential and affluent individuals to spend limitless and untraceable amounts of money on the US elections.
Experts argue that the judgment eroded more than a hundred years of campaign finance reforms. It opened the doors to corruption in the electoral system. Tiffany Muller, the President, is passionate about driving big money out of the US politics. She has rapidly grown the organization to establish global support with more than three million contributing members across the country.
The PAC continues to identify and support candidates advocating for campaign finance reform to enable them to get positions in the House of Representatives. This will allow the organization to elevate the issue of big money in politics to a national priority level.
End Citizens United leverages its grassroots power to energize members and mobilize support for various projects. The average contribution is around $14. In the first year, the PAC raised over $25 million for the 2016 election cycle. The group already had $4 million in the bank by the first quarter of this year. This is from around a hundred thousand members almost half of whom are first-time donors.

It does not accept individual donations of more than $5,000.
It employs aggressive grassroots fundraising strategies to tremendous success. It has quickly become one of the leading Democratic-aligned spenders in the elections. The PAC also supports candidates from the Republican Party as well as liberal and independent advocates of election finance reform. This grassroots strategy is also a symbolic demonstration of the people’s political power.
