California Common Cause (CCC) has an innovative, pragmatic, and comprehensive pro-democracy agenda. We lead and define the democracy reform movement, promoting solutions already succeeding in some communities to shift power to the people.
CCC serves as a vehicle to strengthen public participation and ensure that public officials and public institutions are accountable and responsive to all citizens. Through a powerful combination of grassroots organizing, coalition building, policy development, research, public education, lobbying and litigation, we shed light on issues that affect Californians at the local, statewide, and national level.
Our organization has been on the front lines of numerous hard fought battles to reform government and the political process. California Common Cause has led efforts to give ordinary voters a voice in their government, end the stranglehold of big money interests on politics, and put our democracy back into the hands of Californians.
Today, over one million Common Cause members and supporters are working together across the nation to make government work for the people. More members mean a stronger voice for the public in local, state and national politics. If you’re not already a member we invite you to join us in our quest for a better democracy!
