Curbing the influence of money in politics


Money has too much influence in our elections, so Common Cause in Connecticut is working for an equitable democracy in which everyone can make their voices heard.  Our activism helped create the Citizens’ Election Program, which empowers small dollar donors by supplementing their contributions with public matching funds.  The program strengthens our democracy by allowing candidates of modest means to compete with the wealthy and well-connected.

Holding American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) Accountable

Through ALEC, some of the nation's largest and richest companies invest millions of dollars each year to pass state laws putting corporate interests ahead of the interests of ordinary Americans.

Protect the Citizens’ Election Program

Common Cause in Connecticut spearheaded passage of the Citizens’ Election Program. We're working against the efforts of big money interests to undermine or abolish it.
