Exposing Corporate Power

In America, elected officials are supposed to answer to "we the people."

But today, some corporations and wealthy individuals have formed and/or bankrolled non-profit groups and other associations geared to making elected officials answer to them. Many of these groups use the tax code to hide the identity of their donors.

At Common Cause, we're working to expose these power grabs and block the corporate takeover of our democracy.
