Reclaim Our American Democracy (ROAD)

From Big Money

 MISSION STATEMENT

WHEREAS:

The growing ability of corporations and very wealthy individuals to interfere with America’s democratic institutions should alarm you, regardless of your political viewpoint. The corrosive influence of big money in elections and lawmaking is obvious and indisputable. It is making a mockery of “one person, one vote”. Polls show that the overwhelming majority of Americans believe something must be done immediately to remedy this situation.

WHEREAS:

The January, 2010 ruling of the U. S. Supreme Court in Citizens United v. FEC changed our political landscape and endangered the independence of our government at all levels. Money has always had an influence on elections and lawmaking. However, this ruling opened the floodgates to unprecedented, unlimited and undisclosed spending by corporations and wealthy individuals.

Something needs to be done.

OUR MISSION:

Reclaim Our American Democracy (ROAD) From Big Money is a grassroots organization seeking to overturn the Citizens United decision.  We are located primarily in Washtenaw County, Michigan,  and we are working in cooperation with many other groups across the country to  reverse the takeover of our government by corporations and unlimited wealth.

Our organization is nonpartisan and all are welcome. We engage in educational and advocacy activities to promote a new Democracy Movement in the United States.
