Putting Everyday People Before Big Money


When lawmakers spend too much time fundraising and courting big donors, they lose touch with the everyday people they are supposed to represent. Common Cause New York works to ensure elected officials are responsive to the priorities of all their constituents, not just the wealthy and well-connected, through the adoption of effective campaign finance and public financing of elections laws.

Money & Influence Campaigns...

Lobbyist Disclosure

When well-connected lobbyists wield too much power and influence, everyday New Yorkers can be shut out of the process.

Fair Elections for Suffolk County

We are working to expand public financing into more cities and counties across the state.

Closing New York’s LLC Loophole

New Yorkers know money has too much influence in politics. That's why we're dedicated to protecting reasonable contribution limits.

Expanding Public Financing of Campaigns

Small-donor matching funded elections help break down barriers to participating in our democracy, creating a government that looks more like, and works better for, us.

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.
