Common Cause Minnesota

Americans deserve open, honest, accountable government.

We’re working to deliver it.

Common Cause Minnesota fights to give all Minnesotans a more equitable voice in their local government, regardless of what community they live in, by building a grassroots movement to fundamentally change the inequities of the political system.  We will accomplish this by using our pragmatic approach to change: a combination of successfully passing  reforms, introducing legislation, engaging the media to mold the public narrative and including our members in every step of the way, Common Cause Minnesota is developing the skills and education in the community necessary for a game changing movement.
