Getting big money out of politics depends on one thing–people power. If enough of us work together to put pressure on our elected officials, we can gain enough support to pass a constitutional amendment and restore government that truly works for We The People. Our goal is to have volunteers in every Congressional district building support for an amendment. As a volunteer you can obtain endorsements for the Restore Democracy Amendment from groups and organizations in your community, as well as meeting with your elected officials to get them on board! So, if you would like to get involved, sign up below and one of our team members will contact you with more information.

Meet one of our standout volunteers–Matthew Scammahorn!
While he was a student at Cerritos High School, with a heavy course load of advanced classes and challenging extracurricular activities, Matthew became one of Citizens Take Action’s most active volunteers. He set up a meeting with his local Congressional office, spread the word to friends and family members about the Restore Democracy Amendment, and has helped with everything from research to creating social media content and recruiting additional volunteers.
What inspired Matthew to get involved? We asked and here is what he said:
“I decided to be part of Citizens Take Action because I realized the importance of campaign finance reform in this country. If businesses continue lobbying and buying politicians that serve only corporate interests, us individuals will never have a true voice in government. If the efforts put forth by those who are involved with Citizens Take Action become successful, future politicians will then do what is best for the entire American populace, and not for the privileged few.”
We could not agree more. Thank you Matthew, not only for moving us forward in the battle to get big money out of politics, but for setting an inspiring example for others to follow!
