Stop the flood of corporate money into our democracy

Yesterday, the Supreme Court announced a disastrous rollback of campaign finance laws. Their 5-4 decision gives corporations free rein to spend unlimited amounts of money on elections.

It's a horrible decision. But we can undo some of the damage if Congress passes public financing of elections, which would give progressives and populists who don't have industry backing the ability to compete.

Can you sign the petition urging Congress to move quickly to pass public financing of elections?

A compiled petition with your individual comment will be presented to Congress.
