Take Back Democracy

Our 5-part plan to reform campaign finance

Take Back Democracy is our comprehensive 5-part campaign to fight corporate money in politics.

We talked with policy experts, members of Congress, state legislators, and progressive allies — looking for the most strategic fights to engage in, short term and long term. Here is the plan to take our democracy back from big corporations:

  1. 1) Pass a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United.
  2. 2) Require corporations to get shareholder approval before political spending.
  3. 3) Pass the Disclose Act, to force anonymous big-dollar donors out of the shadows.
  4. 4) Pass public financing of elections, starting in New York state — a major battle happening right now.
  5. 5) Elect campaign finance reform heroes.
