The 2016 election is our best chance yet to stop big money from drowning us out.

Americans are outraged at a government beholden to big donors.

Politicians talk a big game about taking on special interests, then take big checks from corporations and billionaires behind closed doors, doing nothing to change the system once elected!

They can't have it both ways -- it's time to demand action.

We have a bold agenda to fight big money and empower the people: the Fighting Big Money Agenda. And we're calling on Americans from all walks of life to become citizen endorsers

Our next president needs to build a government truly of, by, and for the people. We've joined with 11 other organizations representing Americans from all walks of life to call for a democracy where:

  1. Everyone participates; public matching funds let even small donors make a difference;

  2. Everyone's voice is heard, and every American has equal access to the ballot box;

  3. Everyone knows who is trying to influence our democracy -- all spending is disclosed;

  4. Everyone plays by fair, common-sense rules; pass the Democracy for All amendment to overturn Citizens United; and,

  5. Everyone is held accountable, with enforceable penalties to deter bad behavior.

The next president must appoint reform-minded officials to act on these principles, and use his or her national platform to fight big money, empower the American people, and build a democracy that serves all of us.

We're calling on every presidential candidate to promise they'll get it done -- and back up that promise with action.

Across the political spectrum, Americans are fed up with a government that's more accountable to big donors than to voters.

And five years after Citizens United invited unlimited spending into our elections, the need for change is more urgent than ever.

You can be part of the movement to make that change happen:

We need to overturn Citizens United. We need full disclosure of all campaign spending. We need public financing so candidates don't have to sell out to corporations. We need to make sure every American can vote without unnecessary obstacles. We need strong oversight to keep Super PACs and dark money nonprofits from making a mockery of the law.

And we need a president who'll fight for a democracy where every American's voice is heard. Endorse our plan to fight big money and empower people, and demand that 2016 candidates do the same.
