Reduce Money's Influence
Money has too much influence in our politics and elections. Common Cause New York is building a democracy where everyday New Yorkers have an equal voice.
Create an Ethical Government
We must hold our public officials accountable to high ethical standards to ensure they serve the public interest instead of just well-connected special interests.
Ensure a Reflective Democracy
Common Cause New York is dedicated to fair maps and impartially drawn districts so that our government is truly of, by, and for the people.
