Common Cause New York

Americans deserve open, honest, accountable government.

We’re working to deliver it.

Common Cause New York is the statewide New York chapter of Common Cause. We are dedicated to restoring the core values of American democracy, reinventing an open, honest, and accountable government that empowers ordinary people to make their voices heard. We work to:

  • Strengthen public participation and faith in our institutions of government;
  • Ensure that government and the political process serve the public interest, rather than special interests;
  • Curb the excessive influence of money on government policy and elections;
  • Promote fair and honest elections and high ethical standards for government officials
