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...

Impeachment of Donald Trump

Common Cause has pulled out all the stops in taking the necessary step to stop the Former Trump administration’s attacks on our democracy.

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.

Legislative Ethics

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

Take Action

Write Your Lawmakers

Tell your senators to help pass the Freedom to Vote Act -- which will transform our democracy for the better to ensure it works for all of us.

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.

Fix the Filibuster

If we want the Senate to better represent us — and actually act in the interest of the American people, not just the powerful few — we must immediately eliminate the filibuster.
