How End Citizens United Is Fighting For Change in 2018

There is no time better than the present to start making a change in Washington D.C. Unfortunately, thanks to the 2010 Supreme Court ruling on Citizens United, the will of the people is getting rolled over by the bank accounts of millionaires and billionaires around the country.
