What we're doing...


Voters deserve an ethical government that works for everyone. Far too often, Americans feel like they don’t have a voice in our democracy. With the amount of big money in politics, lack of transparency in our legislatures, and disregard for the law by some politicians and wealthy special interests, creating an ethical and clean government that works in the public interest continues to be our common cause.

Ethics & Accountability Campaigns...

Judicial Ethics

Americans entrust Supreme Court Justices with enormous power, but they are not above the law. We insist that they live by the same ethics rules as all other federal judges.

Executive Ethics

Americans expect executive branch officials, from the president on down, to put the public interest ahead of private profit. We have a record of holding them accountable.

Legislative Ethics

Americans expect that our elected representatives will always put aside their private interests to advance the public interest.

We Demand Democracy

Tell Congress: pass the For The People Act to improve access to voting, make redistricting fair, improve the integrity of our voting systems and get big money out of our elections.

End Gerrymandering Now

Voters should choose politicians, not the other way around! Together we can return the power to draw districts to We The People. Sign the pledge and learn how you can help.

Overturn Citizens United

Join with us to overturn the Citizens United decision and build a democracy in which every voice is represented, not just the voices of a few wealthy special interests.
