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...

Holding American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) Accountable

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.

Campaign Finance

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

Lobbying

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

Corporate Accountability

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