With cancel culture and big tech censorship becoming increasingly prevalent every day, it’s more important than ever for groups like ours to quickly and aggressively fight and protect our inalienable right to free speech.
That’s why when a Harvard Law Professor named Lawrence Lessig filed an initiative petition to limit how much money ANYONE could give to a Super-PAC, we knew we needed to step in.

Our country needs MORE speech, not less.
