Kander, who founded Let America Vote, is a veteran and a former Missouri state legislator, Missouri Secretary of State and Missouri U.S. Senate candidate who now serves as President of Veterans Community Project. Finney, a leading democratic strategist, consultant and political commentator, has over twenty-five years of political and communications experience including the Georgia governor’s race, four presidential campaigns, the Clinton White House, a New York Senate race, and serving as the first African American spokeswoman for the Democratic National Committee.”
“We are excited to welcome Jason Kander and Karen Finney to our Board of Directors,” said ECU President Tiffany Muller. “From shaping policy and politics to serving our nation in uniform, Jason and Karen have both been committed to making government work for everyone. Both will be instrumental to the growth of End Citizens United and Let America Vote as we continue to expand our efforts to root out Big Money special interests and protect the right to vote.”
ECU and Let America Vote (LAV) recently merged to combat the two biggest challenges facing our democracy: Big Money and voter suppression. ECU is dedicated to getting Big Money out of politics and fixing the rigged system in Washington so that the government works for all Americans. LAV is building a grassroots effort to fight back against voter suppression and protect every American’s right to vote.
ECU and LAV will work to end our rigged political system by electing reform champions, passing meaningful legislative reforms, and elevating these issues in the national conversation. ECU has more than four million members nationwide and is entirely grassroots-funded with an average donation of just $14. In 2018, over 1,000 LAV grassroots volunteers knocked on over 340,000 doors, made 112,000 calls, and sent 341,000 texts to help elect 100 pro-democracy leaders.
