Find Your State

We're building a government for everyone, not the wealthy few.

To have a democracy of, by, and for the people, we need a government that gives everyone an equal voice. But today, wealthy special interests and their lobbyists have thrown our system out of balance—they make the rules and set the agenda. That’s why we’re fighting for reforms that diminish the influence of big money in politics.

Money & Influence Campaigns...

Foreign Corporations

Foreign interests should not be able to influence our political system by pouring money into Massachusetts elections.

Disclosure and Transparency

Disclosure in campaign finance is key to a healthy, strong, and fair democracy.

Democracy Amendment

Overturning Citizens United will greatly reduce the influence of big money in our electoral process.

Citizen-Funded Elections

Providing matching funds to amplify the voices of small donors and ordinary voters makes elections fairer and more accessible.

Protect the 2020 Census

Our mission is to push for a democracy that is fair and representative—which is why we are urging the removal of the citizenship question from the 2020 Census form.

Demand Accountability from Our President

Donald Trump was the first presidential candidate in 40 years to refuse to release his tax returns; now that this tradition has been broken, he may not be the last.
