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.
Please mark your calendars for a full-day conference on November 29th, 2016 in on automatic voter registration, hosted by the Brennan Center, Common Cause, the Center for Secure and Modern Elections, and the Suffolk University Government Department. Learn More ›
