End Citizens United/Let America Vote Mission: To fix our democracy by getting big money out of politics and protecting the right to vote. We will work to end our rigged political system by electing reform champions, passing meaningful legislative reforms, and elevating these issues in the national conversation. We will work in partnership with these champions to overturn the Citizens United decision, end the unlimited and undisclosed money in politics, and protect and expand the right to vote.
