This weekend is Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday and the anniversary of the Citizens United v. FEC, the Supreme Court decree allowing unlimited, anonymous spending to influence our elections.
Demand “Money Out, Voters In!”

Voter suppression and the corrupting influence of money in politics are the only way that narrow special interests can undermine our democracy. They are both desperation measures to reverse our quest to become a more perfect union. Let's honor MLK Day, and demand the right for all citizens to vote without obstruction. Let's call upon Congress to get big money out of politics and enact free and fair elections.
Join us to unite two powerful messages calling for a more just and democratic nation.
