  • Citizens Unite! Against Citizens United - NY Action

    5 years later, and inequality is worse across the board!

    The Citizens United v. FEC Supreme Court decision is drowning our democracy in a flood of dark money. 

    Join us to play monopoly on a giant 40’ foot Monoply board and take back our democracy!

    Money in politics is a racial justice issue
    Money in politics is a social justice issue
    Money in politics is an environmental issue
    Money in politics is a moral issue

    MONEY IS NOT SPEECH and CORPORATIONS ARE NOT PEOPLE!!

    Support the national campaign for a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United! 

    Call for comprehensive campaign finance reform that includes public financing for New York State! 

    Demand and end to pay to play politics! Our democracy will not be sold to the highest bidder!

    A massive grassroots movement has sprouted across the country to fix this problem: 
    • 16 states have taken legislative action to address the problem of money in politics, and NY could become the 17th.
    • 2 states have passed ballot initiatives to overturn Citizens United.
    • 42 states have taken some sort of action declaring their desire to Overturn Citizens United.
    • The Democracy For All Act had a Senate majority YES vote, but fell just short of passing

    Together we can achieve our goal to overturn Citizens United in the next 5 years.
