Pledge to Gather Petition Signatures in Your Community

The U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission allows corporations to spend as much as they want to influence our elections. Instead of working for the people, our government increasingly seems to be defending corporate greed. We, the People, must take a stand.

Sign up below to pledge to gather signatures in your community. You can help us document the growing national support for a constitutional amendment to undo Citizens United v. FEC and restore free speech and fair elections to the people.

Don't worry if you've never petitioned before. Check out our petitioning how-to guide to learn all you need to know to get started. 

Basic instructions: Download a printer-friendly version of the constitutional amendment petition (PDF). Print ten copies and take them to a political event, community festival, farmer's market, church or anywhere you'd like to gather signatures. After gathering the signatures, send the completed petition pages back to Public Citizen (for more details and suggestions, check out our petitioning how-to guide). If you have any questions, please contact us at
