Tiffany Muller is the President and Executive Director of End Citizens United. Tiffany came to End Citizens United with a record of empowering the progressive grassroots to achieve ambitious goals – and is excited to bring her talents to the fight to end Citizens United and get big money out of politics.
During her first cycle as head of End Citizens United, she helped grow the start-up into a nationwide organization with more than 3 million members that raised more than $25 million, with an average contribution of only $14. In End Citizens United’s first cycle, Tiffany led the organization to help elect 15 new champions of campaign finance reform (including Senator Maggie Hassan in New Hampshire and Senator Catherine Cortez-Masto in Nevada). In the 2018 election cycle, End Citizens United is tapping the power of its grassroots fundraising and energized members to elevate the issue of money in politics as a national priority and elect champions of campaign finance reform.
Prior to joining End Citizens United, Tiffany was Deputy Political Director at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee where she worked with the top-tier Senate races across the country. She also served as a chief of staff to two Members of Congress.
In 2004, Tiffany became the first openly gay public official in Kansas as a member of the Topeka City Council, where she led successful efforts to expand anti-discrimination protections. After working for Governor Kathleen Sebelius, Tiffany ran a political research firm based in Florida where she worked on some of the biggest races across the country. In 2012, she was the Vice-President of Political Operations at Victory Fund in a record breaking year for LGBT candidates that included electing the first openly LGBT US Senator and doubling representation in Congress.
Tiffany received her undergraduate degree from Washburn University in Topeka, KS and her Master’s from the University of Maryland. She is a die-hard fan of the Kansas City Chiefs and US Women’s Soccer. She lives in Washington, DC with her wife and their daughter.
