In the five years since the Supreme Court’s disastrous Citizens United ruling, the amount of money flowing into our democratic process has skyrocketed. The 2014 midterms were the most expensive elections in history with a total of nearly $4 billion poured into them. And it’s only going to get worse.
Citizens United doesn’t just hurt our democracy — it also affects our ability to address the climate crisis. The new anti-environment members of Congress are already showing their loyalty to the Big Polluters that helped put them in office. Pushing forward Keystone XL, threatening to defund the EPA, and cutting clean air and water protections are just the start.
We must take action to overturn Citizens United! Please join the thousands of LCV members and people across the country in sending an urgent message to Congress today.
Reverse Citizens United!
Large corporations have too much influence in our democratic process -- and the vast sums of money they can spend to influence our elections as a result of the Supreme Court's disastrous Citizens United ruling is only making it worse. This past election was the most expensive in history, with an egregious nearly $4 billion spent. We must ensure that our elections are decided solely by voters, and not unduly influenced by the hundreds of millions of dollars that large corporations are now free to spend.
