Learn More About the Grassroots Finance Committee

Typical candidates rely on big corporate donors and influencers to fund their campaign. Candidates often form a finance committee made up of the who’s who of the corporate class who bring in huge sums of money from those at the top. 

In return, candidates advance the agenda of their donors. And too often, our politics are decided by a handful of corporations which back the candidates who will cozy up to their interests.  That’s how we get a government that sympathizes more with corporate interests than with the needs of everyday Americans.  

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is not a typical candidate.  He is running for President to end the corrupt merger of state and corporate power.  To do that, we have to start by flipping the script on the way our campaign is funded.

That’s why we are proud to launch the Grassroots Finance Committee.  This is a historic, people-powered movement to fund Mr. Kennedy’s campaign for President where we are asking everyday Americans to commit to raising funds for this campaign.  

We are relying on a truly grassroots fundraising model because we don’t want the corporations to decide who the next President is. We want you–the people–to decide.  

But, we need your help.
