Four years ago, the Supreme Court made their disastrous Citizens United decision, allowing corporations like Monsanto and Chevron to spend unlimited money to influence elections — putting corporations over people.Food & Water Watch is working with allies to take back our democracy by reversing this decision, but it's going to take time to build a grassroots movement to demand change on that level.The good news is the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) can start to rein in corporate money now! But the SEC won't act without pressure.Send a public comment to the SEC Chairwoman Mary Jo White to require corporations to disclose their political spending.Note: Your comment and any other information you provide below will be displayed publicly on the SEC’s website or on www.regulations.gov.
