George Soros Stands Behind Black Lives Matter for a Good Reason

The grassroots movement known as Black Lives Matter (BLM) has emerged as a major protest organization for the African American community. Currently, it is the biggest and best organized African American social organization that conducts protests on behalf of the African American community. BLM emerged in 2013 in response of George Zimmerman’s acquittal pertaining to the Treyvon Martin slaying.

This organization was started by three female activists who were being groomed to lead protests on behalf of black minorities. Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi are the three women who created this organization from the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter.

BLM is supported by at least 82% of all black people and this organization relies on non-violent protests to make changes within society. The ultimate goal of Black Lives Matter is to make U.S. police departments transparent and accountable. They also want reform the police department so that officers are better trained to deal with minorities.

Protest organizations cannot survive if they’re not funded. It would be impossible for them to stay relevant without financial support. In the past, all organizations were supported by individuals or groups making donations. This is one reason as to why Black Lives Matter needs the support of donors such as George Soros. Their financial contributions help BLM to stay afloat. Read this story at Politico about George Soros.

End Citizens United Calling For A Constitutional Amendment

End Citizens United is trying to overturn Citizens United. They already have 250,755 signatures. They are still trying to get more.

End Citizens United states that Citizens United is a complete disaster as it led to the opening of floodgates for corporations who were now able to write big checks. These were able to fund the special interest attacks of the right-wings. This helped to pour in $719 million during the 2012 elections.

Now what is to be done about it? This is why End Citizens United is looking for a constitutional amendment that will be able to put power back into the hands of people. These would mean actual people and not corporations.

The fact is that U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision in 2010 managed to change the complete landscape of American elections. It led to opening the door to billionaires and such other special interests that could now spend unlimited money that was simply untraceable.

End Citizens United does recognize that meaningful reform would require action at the grassroots. End Citizens United had been established as a Political Action Committee on March 1, 2015.

This is when Mothership Strategies was given the task of building a huge base of grassroots supporters. This was needed by End Citizens United in order to take on big corporate money. They had to put all these hard earned dollars into defending champions of campaign finance reform as they took on the corrupt politicians.

They managed to raise $25million online. Out of this 3.5million was through citizen supporters, 1.8 million was through individual contributors.

Mothership strategies were taking on the ultra-rich. Hence this required the financial support of a large number of grassroots donors, as well as their committed support.

This way data has been combined with in-house expertise. Personalized experiences could be tailored for each of the grassroots supporters.
