  6. SEND A MESSAGE TO CONGRESS:

    Overturn the disastrous Citizens United decision for the integrity of our elections. We can get fossil fuel money out of politics and make sure our democracy works for us all, not just the wealthy few. Urge your members of Congress to support the Democracy for All Amendment today to undo Citizens United.

    SIGN NOW

    URGENT: Tell your representative to support campaign finance reforms that keep fossil fuel companies from dumping millions of dollars into our elections »

    Lola — Our democracy is in peril.

    Because of the 2010 Supreme Court case Citizens United vs. FEC, special interest groups can spend unlimited amounts of money in our elections — giving corporations more power than people to finance and help elect candidates that support their agendas. And Big Polluters have taken advantage — giving millions of fossil fuel dollars to their candidates, drowning out our voices — especially the voices of people of color that are already disenfranchised.

    But imagine this, Lola — elections decided solely by voters who cast their ballots for the candidates that will actually work to better our communities and planet.

    That’s the way our democracy should work.

    Pro-democracy leaders in Congress are pushing the Democracy for All Amendment — a Constitutional amendment that would limit the ability of corporations and individuals to spend millions of dollars to buy our elections. It’s a tough order: to pass an amendment to the Constitution, we’ll need to get a supermajority of our representatives and senators to vote yes.

    But we can do it if every dedicated LCV supporter sends an urgent message to Congress right now. Can we count on you to act, Lola?

    We deserve a fair democracy that works for us all — that’s why it’s so important that you speak out now in support of the Democracy for All Amendment, Lola »

    Big Polluter influence in our elections has undermined our government and ability to protect our planet for far too long. Because of the Citizens United court decision, fossil fuel billionaires are able to funnel millions of dollars into our elections to help anti-environment Republicans, who in turn will deny climate science, gut environmental safeguards, and help polluter’s bottom lines. And without limits on the amount of money that fossil fuel companies can put in each cycle, climate change deniers can stay in power year after year.

    Worst of all, this cycle steals the power away from voters like us. Fossil fuel money flooding our elections means communities lose the opportunity to choose representation in Congress, which further disenfranchises them. While communities of color, women, and indigenous people are disproportionately impacted by environmental challenges, it is critical that they are able to elect leaders that will fight for them — not become stuck with Big Polluter cronies. The Democracy for All Amendment is a real way to ensure that people — not polluters — decide our elections.

    To get this bill over the finish line, Congress needs to know that their constituents have their back — that’s why we’re working with our partners to send the message loud and clear: for the sake of our communities, we must pass the Democracy for All Amendment. We need your help. Each person reading this email MUST contact their members of Congress today to save our democracy.

    This is the moment to act. The Democracy for All Amendment is a critical step forward to building a better democracy for us all. Join us in this fight »

    Thank you for fighting for our democracy.
