Seven years ago, the Supreme Court of America ruled for Citizens United, a bill that severely changed the course of American politics. According to the ruling, large corporations were given the same status as the common people when it came to their rights concerning the elections and matters of governance. After the bill had been set into motion, numerous company owners started investing large sums of money into political parties. As a result of this, political parties began to work in favor of these companies, trying to establish regulations for the benefit of these donors. As a result, the emphasis of political parties shifted from the well-being of the people to catering to the rich and famous. The common people started facing a backlash owing to this and started feeling like their voices were not being heard.
End Citizens United was a movement began to give the power of governance back to the people, to help them once again be part of their democracy and the have a say in how they wish to be governed. The organization was started by a few entrepreneurs who wanted a change in their system of governance. With the enormous amounts of big business investing into political parties, a large number of multinational corporations are finding a way to pursue tax evasions, while the common people are still struggling with the burdens of taxations. End Citizens United aims to fight for the re-establishment of transparency in political systems and to ensure that the country is once again being governed by a lawful and learned group of people who are always working for the benefit of society.
