Why Fight Corruption?
Fix politics, fix every issue you care about
Our broken political system fosters polarization, gridlock, and a lack of choices. It renders government unable to solve the most pressing challenges.
- The average US Senator must raise over $14,000 a day, every day for 6 years to run for re-election.
- Nearly 90% of US Congressional districts are gerrymandered, preventing any competition.
- Over 40% of US voters are registered independents, but only two members of Congress are not affiliated with the two major parties.
Fixing Corruption Fixes Everything

Politicians routinely grant lucrative contracts and approve bloated budgets to please super-donors
Special interests prevent the kind of reforms that would make American education competitive with the rest of the world
Wealthy special interests stifle government action on the environment
