What we're doing...


We deserve a democracy in which each of us is represented and has a voice — and a government that works for every American, not just the wealthy few. It’s time to add much-needed balance to our democracy and enforce tougher rules to ensure politicians can’t be bought by the highest bidder.

Money & Influence Campaigns...

ALEC

Through the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), some of the nation's largest and richest companies invest millions of dollars each year to pass state laws putting corporate interests ahead of the interests of ordinary Americans.

Corporate Accountability

We must demand transparency and accountability from big corporations that spend big money in our politics.

Lobbying

We are working to hold special interest lobbyists accountable with fair and transparent rules.

Campaign Finance

We are building a strong democracy with commonsense solutions that put everyday Americans before big money donors.

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."

Overturn Citizens United

Together, we can build a democracy in which every voice is represented, not just the voices of a few, wealthy special interests.

No Pardon for Manafort

Paul Manafort chaired Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. He has been found guilty of federal crimes -- pardoning him would be an abuse of power.
