It is a grassroots non -profit political action committee that is funded through local contribution by locals support. The main objective of the organization is to lobby for the reformation of the United States campaign finance system.
End Citizens was founded in the aftermath of a controversial Supreme Court judgment in 2010 that allowed unlimited donations to political parties or candidates by corporate. The organization hopes to attain these reforms through a wide coalition building that will pressure lawmakers to take action and reform campaign financing rules.
The mission of End Citizens is elimination of big money in political funding through ensuring that only reformists are elected so that the use of undisclosed money with questionable background in campaign funding can be brought to a halt. This they want to achieve through making undisclosed funding for campaigns a major national priority, campaign for election of pro-reform candidates and usage of its grassroots membership to campaign against use of dark money in campaign financing.

End Citizens says Russians were involved in 2016 elections
During the 2016 presidential elections, it is alleged that a Russian company with connections to its political headquarters bought out political advertisements to help influence the elections to favor Donald Trump. Foreign involvement in funding US campaigns is banned but this rule has been flouted severally and is generally ineffective since the laws are weak, politicians have always instructed lobbyists flout the rule by making payoffs that are illegal, or fund their campaigns with cash that cannot be traced.
Foreign Governments seize the reins of Government
The alleged Russian involvement was through running campaigns with heavy innuendos in certain critical campaign battlegrounds. An example was one alleged Melvin Redick making posts on social media campaigning against Hillary Clinton’s candidature. Investigations later revealed that no such person existed with his profile picture, which he had stolen, being traced to a Brazilian.
Other contents posted on the website included information that Russian Hackers had stolen from unsuspecting Americans. These stolen materials would be used in smear campaigns against Hillary Clinton. Trump seemed to be in the know since he kept accusing Mrs. Clinton and Democrats at large, had planned to steal the presidential election, this seemed like a diversionary tactic to drive attention away from Trumps benefiting from these Russian hacks. Russians continued to post fake news on social media platforms to encourage anti-Clinton propaganda.
It is examples like the one above that has organizations like End Citizens United speaking up against weak rules that do not support the enforcement of these laws. Organizations like these cannot be known since they provide sanity in the complicated world of politics. They also serve to help America from falling into the hands of foreign oligarchs who may be keen on ruling America on proxy by virtue of their donations to campaigns. Join End Citizens and help save America’s failing political system.
