What We Do

We bring together conservatives, progressives, and everyone in between to pass powerful anti-corruption laws that stop political bribery, end secret money, and fix our broken elections.

How We Do It

Together, we’re going around Congress. Represent.Us members bring powerful anti-corruption reforms to the ballot, where the people can vote for them directly. (No politicians required.)

In 2014, conservatives and progressives worked together to pass America’s first citywide Anti-Corruption Act in Tallahassee, Florida. Since then, voters have passed Anti-Corruption Acts and Resolutions in 30 cities and states across America.

In 2016, Represent.Us members passed the first statewide Anti-Corruption Act in South Dakota. Soon after, the state legislature brazenly repealed it.

In 2018, our members are fighting back in South Dakota with a statewide Anti-Corruption Amendment that politicians can’t repeal or change. And together, we’re headed to the ballot in 4-8 more states and dozens of cities nationwide.

Our Advisors

Advisory Council

Our Advisors represents a broad political spectrum, from progressives to Tea Party conservatives. Confronting the kind of systemic corruption that’s paralyzing our government will require a massive movement — that means putting partisan differences aside and focusing on where we agree. Poll after poll has found that Democrats, Republicans, and Independents all support tough new anti-corruption laws. We’re working together to turn that support into action.
