Step 1: Voice Your Passion for Change
Congress is too beholden to big donors and the “Political Industrial Complex,” and the Supreme Court issues rulings like Citizens United that make things only worse. This means only we citizens can free our vote. It starts by making ourselves heard.
So call and write your representatives. Submit letters and OpEds to local newspapers. Press politicians at town halls to support the nonpartisan Election Reform Constitutional Amendment. Share on social media. And oppose candidates addicted to rich outside donors who dilute our voices.

How to Take ACTION Today!
Polls show 88% of voters support reforming our corrupted campaign finance system and other aspects of our elections. That’s overwhelming support regardless of party affiliation. And the more active and vocal that support is, the better. Need help expressing your passion?
