As we prepare for the beginnings of a new year, we look back on this year’s progress and our many achievements. With your help, we have reached many milestones in our work to overturn Citizens United and reclaim our democracy. To show your support, we urge you to donate to our end of year campaign, here.
Here is an overview of all that we have achieved together this year:
The Constitutional Amendment Movement Reached the Senate Floor
On September 11, 2014, 54 US Senators voted to support the Democracy For All Amendment, which would overturn the Supreme Court's rulings in Citizens United, McCutcheon, and Buckley, and would allow for overall campaign spending limits in our elections. This historic vote marked a huge victory for the constitutional amendment movement and Free Speech For People played a critical leadership role in making this happen. The vote reflects the growing power of this grassroots movement with 16 states and more than 550 cities and towns on record in support of an amendment.
