National Organizations - Campaign Finance and Democracy

American Promise brings Americans together to win the 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to secure fair elections, effective representation of the people, and a republic where we citizens—not money, not corporations, not special interests—govern ourselves.

The Brennan Center for Justice is a leading intellectual force in developing policies that ensure everyone has a real chance to have their voice heard.

The Campaign Legal Center advocates for passing and enforcing strong campaign finance reforms that help guarantee a democracy responsive to the people.

The Center for Political Accountability shines a light on corporate political spending, and works to improve transparency and accountability, and ensure that companies act in ways that are in accord with the values of their shareholders and the principles of our nation.

Citizens Take Action is committed to getting big money out of politics and strongly supports a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United and restore government that truly works for We The People.

Common Cause is working to build a democracy in which every voice is represented, not just the voices of a few, wealthy special interests.

Democracy 21 wants to eliminate the undue influence of big money in American politics, prevent government corruption, empower citizens in the political process and ensure the integrity and fairness of government decisions and elections.

Demos deploys original research, advocacy, litigation, and strategic communications to shift power from wealthy donors to working people and empower all Americans to participate more fully in our democracy.

End Citizens United is working to overturn the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision and end unlimited and undisclosed money in politics by electing campaign finance reform champions, passing state ballot measures, and elevating the issue in the national conversation. 

Every Voice wants to restore balance to our political system, so regular people are heard and represented, regardless of how much money they have. They design, support, and win small-donor elections programs at all levels of government across the country.

Free Speech for People was founded on the day the U.S. Supreme Court ruled—with the Citizens United decision—that political spending is a form of free speech. They work to overturn that ruling through a Constitutional amendment and to realize their vision of a democratic process in which all people have an equal voice and an equal vote.

Issue One is a nonpartisan, nonprofit advocacy organization dedicated to political reform and government ethics in order to strengthen democracy and return government to the American people.

Move to Amend is a coalition of organizations and individuals working to pass an amendment to the US Constitution to unequivocally state that inalienable rights belong to human beings only, and that money is not a form of protected free speech under the First Amendment and can be regulated in political campaigns.

The National Institute on Money in Politics tracks campaign finance data and makes it available to news organizations and others to enable you to #FollowTheMoney.

OpenSecrets.org is the most comprehensive nonpartisan resource for federal campaign contributions, lobbying data and analysis available anywhere.

Represent Us brings 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.

The Sunlight Foundation is a national, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that uses civic technologies, open data, policy analysis and journalism to make our government and politics more accountable and transparent to all.

Take Back Our Republic counters those who seek to buy political favor by educating and engaging the citizens of this great land who are both disenfranchised with and disgusted by the entire political process.

The Voters’ Right to Know Project is a nonpartisan effort to advance effective policy surrounding the transparency of money in American politics.


National Organizations - Free Press

The Center for Public Integrity is an investigative news organization that gives voice to the public and sparks change by going behind closed doors to reveal abuses of power in Washington.

The Institute for Nonprofit News provides education and business support services to their nonprofit member organizations and promotes the value and benefit of public-service and investigative journalism.

MapLight reveals the influence of money in politics, informs and empowers voters, and advances reforms that promote a more responsive democracy.

Solutions Journalism Network works to spread the practice of solutions journalism: rigorous reporting on responses to social problems. They seek to rebalance the news, so that every day people are exposed to stories that help them understand problems and challenges, and stories that show potential ways to respond.
