End Citizens United: A Political Action Committee in Action

End Citizens United’s Political Action Committee was formed in March 2014. It is donated by grassroots level contributors. The committee is active against an organization named Citizens United which they consider harmful to the American society. The committee members are mobilizing elected officials, voters, candidates and the press that Citizens United is buying elections for billionaires. The main objective of End Citizens United is the formation of a coalition that would do tasks like restructuring the financial system and influence elected officials for continuing it. One can easily say that End Citizens United is against the Big Money in the US politics because it is a loophole for rigging. For that, end of Citizens United is vital, so American politics cannot be manipulated with money. The action committee is choosing grassroots level members for showing its power and electing candidates who favor reforms.

 

During 2016 elections, End Citizens United supported candidates of Democratic Party that were against Citizens United. The candidates are also for reforms that PAC is advocating for some time. It was discovered that rigging was done in the elections by Koch Brothers and SuperPAC. Representatives and senators were bought with dark money. On August 2015, End Citizens United was founded to counter this practice. Since its formation, small donors donated the group an amount of two million dollars. The target to achieve its goals is thirty million dollars.

 

A court gave a decision in the favor of Citizens United, and End Citizens United is against it. The committee wants a constitutional amendment against the court’s decisions. There are many proofs that Citizens United used dark money and groups to influence the elections. End Citizens United is getting a petition signed by masses that demands the Congress to make the desired legislation. An alliance named “Ready for Hillary” is also gaining pace, and it would also support End Citizens United.

 

Soon after the formation of End Citizens United, about ten candidates of the Democratic Party joined End Citizens United. They included well-known people like Russ Feingold and Michael Bennet. Feingold is the Senator from Wisconsin while Bennet is the Senator from Colorado. Carbo is a member of End Citizens United. He said that the group is working on getting those candidates elected which would make desired changes in the laws. These candidates would initially raise voice against Citizens United, and later, reform the financial structure. Carbo also said that his group supports those candidates as well which were bothered by dark money groups and Koch Brothers. In 2016, End Citizens United formed a new section that worked for TV advertisement of candidates, polling, and direct mailers. The mission of End Citizens United is to get a constitutional amendment passed that ends Citizens United.

 

Black Women are Claiming the Comedy Stage

 

 

Women have to deal with a lot. Black women have to deal with even more. In a world that is constantly telling them no, constantly telling them that they can’t be funny– there are several women who are taking the scene, claiming the spotlight, and demanding otherwise. From stage to screen, Leslie Jones and Sheryl Underwood are taking the black women comedians world by storm, writing it and refining it in their own narrative, and laughing all the way.

 

Leslie Jones has been called “one of the funniest women in the game”. But before she gained stardom and notoriety from her notable works in Saturday Night Live and the all-girls Ghostbusters remake, Jones was hustling funny bones along the road. Prior to Jones introduction to the big-time spotlight, she entertained a more lowkey (albeit still very successful) gig as a road comic. In fact, she was at this gig for 25 years. But even before that, Jones was performing stand-up at her college. She’s always been funny. But now, she’s finally famous.

 

For Sheryl Underwood, comedy became saving grace. Despite enduring many hardships throughout her childhood and adult-life, there has always been one thing which Underwood has preserved, and that is her sharp tongue and her commendable ability to be able to express herself comically. She took a job in the military before finally giving into the passion which have been meanwhile calling her all along: comedy.

 

Now, as an actress, writer, and television host with a net worth of over 2 million, Underwood continues to put that sharp mind and sharp-witted tongue to the test. What’s more to commend? She is the founder of the African American Female Comedian Association. Underwood not only inspires people to laughter– she inspires them as a famous INFP, period.
