End Citizens United is an organization which was started in 2015 in Washington D.C with the aim of fighting for the rights of the common citizen. Its major focus is to ensure that there is transparency in the judicial systems. It also revisits laws passed by the supreme courts to endorse corporations that enrich themselves at the expense of the less fortunate.
End Citizens United has endorsed candidates who are against Corporate PAC money. Corporate PAC money aims at controlling the ideas of the voters denying them the chance to make both political and financial decisions. It also aims to allocate more money to the elite group while making the average citizen poorer.
During campaigns periods, the interested candidates have been receiving a vast amount of money from corporations and therefore denying voters their constitutional rights. The supreme courts have also made it possible for these corporations to channel billions of cash in funding political campaigns. End Citizens United has always refuted the Supreme Court decision, and it has managed to effect some positive legislative changes which aim in giving the common citizen more power in decision making.

According to the End Citizens United, the body is determined to put more power in the hands of the people by achieving the following.
- a) Carrying out a nationwide campaign to educate citizens on the importance of having more power in their hands. By doing this, a huge amount of money channeled in campaign programs will be reduced.
- b) Electing candidates who are honest and hardworking. Such candidates raise their campaign money from private voters, therefore, building more confidence and integrity.
- c) Organizing mobilization programs where the problem of using more money in politics is addressed. In this, voters need to be enlightened on how to spend big amounts of money in politics and which affects the taxpayers. It is also in regard as to the way it destabilizes the economy of the country.
- d) The End citizens United is also working with the Ballot measure providers to ensure there are changes in the electoral systems in all the states. By changing the electoral systems, candidates will not be allowed to receive Corporate PAC money, and therefore corporate interests will not outweigh the interests of the citizens.
In conclusion, in every state, more power should be vested in the hand of citizens for developments to be manifested. If more money is left in the hands of few people, nation crisis emerges and hinders the national development. The organization ensures there is recorded progress in the country, and the citizens have more power.
