Common Cause Massachusetts

Americans deserve open, honest, accountable government.

We’re working to deliver it.

Tired of dysfunctional government? We don't blame you. It’s easy to get discouraged by special interest politics and partisan gridlock. But don't let your discouragement become apathy. 

We know how to fix our democracy. It starts with putting an end to partisan redistricting, limiting the undue influence of money in elections, encouraging broad voter participation, and ensuring diverse, accessible, and accountable media. This is how we fix our democracy, and this is exactly what Common Cause Massachusetts wants to work with you to achieve. 

Join us in saying “No!” to our gerrymander rigged, big money political system, and “Yes!” to open, honest, and accountable democracy.
