Common Cause Commends Introduction of We The People Act by Sen. Udall & Rep. Price

At a time when too many Americans do not think they have a meaningful voice in their democracy, when confidence in our institutions is at historic lows, and cynicism at record highs, this democracy reform package is needed more than ever. These reforms are working at the state level, empowering citizens and breaking down barriers to participation for all Americans, irrespective of political party.

Statement of Karen Hobert Flynn, Common Cause President

At a time when too many Americans do not think they have a meaningful voice in their democracy, when confidence in our institutions is at historic lows, and cynicism at record highs, this democracy reform package is needed more than ever. These reforms are working at the state level, empowering citizens and breaking down barriers to participation for all Americans, irrespective of political party. We commend the democracy reform package being introduced today by Senator Udall and Representative Price, and the legislative efforts being undertaken by many other reform leaders in Congress. We look forward to supporting these efforts and ongoing collaboration to help ensure that all Americans can have a stronger voice in our government.
