Stand Up to Corporate America

Demonstrations to Mark the Anniversary of
Citizens United v. FEC on January 21 & 22

The movement to stand up to Corporate America's encroachments on our democracy and amend the Constitution to prevent corporate control of our elections is growing stronger every day. Check out the list of events already being planned in Washington, D.C., and across the country to see if something is happening near you.

Public Citizen is working with organizations to mobilize nationwide demonstrations around January 21, 2011: the one-year anniversary of the day the Supreme Court handed down its outrageous 5-4 decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission.

Add your name TODAY to pledge to participate in a demonstration against the Supreme Court's decision on Friday, January 21 or Saturday, January 22. If you can volunteer to help organize an event near you, please let us know with a comment in the space below.

The majority of Americans are appalled by the corporate corruption of our democracy and support a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United v. FEC. Our government’s job is to serve the people, not the likes of BP, Halliburton, Monsanto, JPMorgan and Philip Morris. It's time for We, the People to take a stand.
