We are creating a democracy where everyone’s voice is heard and everyone plays by fair and commonsense rules.
We are building a strong democracy with commonsense solutions that put everyday Americans before big money donors.
Minnesotans know that money has too much influence in our political system. That’s why we advocate for money in politics solutions that empower small-dollar donors to make an impact in campaigns, require disclosure of all campaign money raised and spent, remove the financial barriers stopping everyday people from running for office, and hold elected officials and wealthy special interests accountable to voters.
Even with the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United v. FEC, states and cities across the country are proving that we can reform and improve our campaign finance system with laws that amplify the voices of everyday Minnesotans, require strong disclosure, and make sure everyone plays by the same common-sense rules.
We have been working hard to rein in the power of big money in politics. Our work to reform the system has always been about making sure there is accountability in our politics and everyone has a voice and say in government.
In addition to citizens funded elections such as campaign funding vouchers, we support reforms that provide public matching funds to amplify the role of ordinary Minnesotans in financing elections and have made it possible for more women, people of color, and those of modest means to run and get elected to public office.
