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.
