End Citizens United is a political action committee funded by grassroots donors to drive big money out of the US politics. End Citizens United collected over $4 million in its first three years towards a fundraiser intended to raise $35 million for the Congress ahead of the 2018 midterm elections. That would be a significant increase from $25 million raised ahead of the 2016 elections, its first election cycle. In 2016, around 100,000 people contributed towards PAC’s fundraiser during the first quarter of the year. Of this, 40,000 people participated during the first round of funding according to Tiffany Muller, the President and Executive Director of PAC. End Citizens’ mission is to elect champions of campaign finance reform to Congress.
Recently, End Citizens United has urged its contributors to donate $500,000 towards Democrat Jon Ossof campaign. Ossof, 30, is the first-time political candidate in Georgia. He led Republicans throughout a fundraiser aimed at generating over $4 million for the April 18 election to fill a Republican House seat left by Tom Price, Health and Human Services Secretary in suburban Atlanta. According to Muller, a former Senate Democrats’ campaign arm deputy director, End Citizens is examining the races in which it will remain active even after 2018 election. However, it could play a role in defending Jon Tester, Sherrod Brown of Ohio, and Democratic Sens.

The political action committee operates as a traditional PAC and doesn’t accept donations beyond $5,000 from donors. Irrespective of that contribution cap, End Citizens’ fundraiser in 2016 elevated it to the top ranks of Democratic-aligned political donor groups. End Citizens initiative sparked concerns among some political establishments emphasizing grassroots activism over big money in politics. Adam Bozzi, End Citizens United’s spokesman says that the organization commits to building more ties with campaign finance reform groups. End Citizens United collaborated with several campaign finance groups to urge Republican senators who are beneficiaries of Betsy DeVos campaign donations to decline to vote her nomination as Trump’s Education Secretary.
