for Victory in 2016
Together, RepresentUs members are making 2016 a watershed moment for our movement.
Our members are shifting the balance of power across America. But entrenched interests will stop at nothing to defend the corrupt status quo. So this is going to take everything we’ve got.
2016 statewide Anti-Corruption Act targets:
The Washington Government Accountability Act, Initiative 1464, is powered by more than 24,000 Washington RepresentUs members and a cross-partisan coalition called Integrity Washington. Together, we can restore public trust in government by increasing transparency, giving voters a stronger voice, and strengthening enforcement.
End secret money and reveal who’s buying political ads.
Encourage voter participation and empower small donors.
Increase penalties and hold rulebreakers accountable.
The South Dakota Government Accountability and Anti-Corruption Act, Initiative 22, is championed by the bipartisan coalition South Dakotans for Integrity and more than 2,000 RepresentUs members in South Dakota. The Act will prevent political bribery, improve transparency, and increase enforcement of South Dakota’s ethics laws.
