How We Work
We pass reforms at the state and local levels that fight corruption and give more power to everyday people. Our plan is to build enough momentum to take this movement to the federal level. We partner with local coalitions and choose our targets wisely, opting for campaigns that are winnable and impactful.
We’re passionate about solving America’s political crisis in our lifetime. At the state, county, and local levels, we’re leading the fight against corruption. Here’s the progress we’ve made since we started in 2012.
Where We Work
We run campaigns at the city, county, and state levels across the nation, focusing on efforts that are winnable and impactful. We empower communities with the political, legal, communications, and organizing tools to win meaningful victories.

Lena & Rich
LEADERS, REPRESENTUS WISCONSIN
Rich and Lena currently serve as the leaders of RepresentUs Wisconsin.
For decades, they were disengaged conservative voters, staying away from politics. A few years ago, they realized that there were systemic problems caused by our broken political system that weakened America’s middle class and launched RepresentUs Wisconsin in Spring, 2019.
REPRESENTUS VOLUNTEER, CALIFORNIA
Margui is a longtime ‘momtivist’. Born in Colombia, she found her footing in volunteering with Moms Demand Action, but quickly expanded to other organizations and was so happy to find RepresentUS.
She believes the right to vote is a duty that should be easily fulfilled by all citizens, regardless of race or socio-economic status. Her passion is for her children to have a government that represents them and all constituents, faithfully.
LEADER, REPRESENT NEW YORK
Alan is a long time phonebanker and leader of his local New York State chapter. You can find him on Slack racking up phone calls and cracking jokes that keep everyone’s spirits high.
“As a boomer I finally feel like I can make a difference. Even if it’s just one phone call or text at a time. Back in the ’90s I got arrested for stealing a horse. So come on into the Action Brigade if you ever want to meet a horse thief.”
