Americans deserve open, honest, accountable government.
We’re working to deliver it in California.
California Common Cause (CCC) is a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots advocacy organization that works to strengthen public participation and ensure that public officials and public institutions are accountable and responsive to citizens. In the last decade, we have led efforts to successfully pass important reforms to create a more participatory and inclusive democracy, including Props. 8 and 20 (creating California’s Citizens Redistricting Commission), Online Voter Registration, Same Day Registration and strengthened municipal campaign finance and ethics rules.
Through a powerful combination of grassroots organizing, coalition building, policy development, research, public education, lobbying and litigation, we spotlight local, state and national issues that affect Californians. Let’s make sure every voter has a voice, end the stranglehold of big money interests on politics, and put democracy back into the hands of Californians.
A few words of wisdom from Miles!
