We hold power accountable, regardless of who is in power.


Rhode Islanders deserve a government that operates fairly and transparently. We’re advocating for reforms that hold elected officials accountable for their actions and help voters stay informed about the workings of their government.

Ethics & Accountability Campaigns...

Open Meetings Act

In a healthy democracy, voters should have access to agendas, minutes, budgets, and bylaws of government entities.

Independent Ethics Commission

Rhode Island has one of the strongest Ethics Commissions in the United States—but there's still work to do to improve our Code of Ethics.

Access to Public Records

A transparent government with accessible, affordable public records is important to maintaining a free and fair democracy.
