Americans deserve open, honest, accountable government.
We’re working to deliver it.
At Colorado Common Cause, we work to strengthen democracy in the state. We promote public participation in politics by protecting voting rights and lowering barriers to voting. We work to ensure that government serves the public interest by drawing attention to the problem of money in politics and building the movement for large scale campaign finance reform. And we promote government accountability by advocating for increased transparency and ethics in government.
To carry out this work, we lobby on behalf of reform in the Colorado General Assembly and local government councils. We also drive local and statewide ballot measures and participate in administrative rulemakings.
Colorado is one of a number of states with strong campaign finance disclosure requirements for contributions and expenditures in state races. But in this climate of increased influence by Big Money, even these simple transparency wins for the public are being targeted. Learn More ›
