|This Saturday will be historic for all the wrong reasons.
It’s the second anniversary of Citizens United, the Supreme Court decision that paved the way for billionaires and special interests to spend unlimited money on super PACs—the same so-called independent organizations that have spent twice as much money in the presidential primaries as the candidates themselves!
Fortunately, there’s something you can do about it… this weekend.
United Republic is joining with our friends at United4thePeople.org to say “hell no!” to Citizens United. They have a great map of the nation with the time and place of local actions where you can stand up and demand that we Get Money Out of politics.

On another front, some of our members have asked for a United Republic/Get Money Out update: how the organization is coming together, who is running it, and what we have planned. I’ve written up a set of answers to those questions—click here to see them. I’ll be in touch soon with more ways to learn and be part of this exciting effort to get money out of politics.
Meanwhile, forward this to your friends—conservative and liberal—because this issue and this weekend isn’t about right vs. left or Republicans vs. Democrats. It’s about whether we the people are able to rise up, put aside our differences, and reclaim a nation of, by, and for the people.
