Fix Congress to Restore Trust in Our Democracy

Support the Fair Elections Now Act

As we've watched presidents in both parties fail to pass their agendas, it's become increasingly clear that elections are no longer where decisions are made in this country. That weakening of our democracy should frighten everyone equally, whether or not you support the people currently in power.

Our goal is to restore public trust in our government by passing a hybrid of small-dollar donations and public financing of elections.

Last month's Supreme Court decision allowing unlimited special-interest intervention into our elections made a broken political system much worse. Only one bill currently under consideration is strong enough to restore public trust in Congress.

No other reform could be as important right now as passing the Fair Elections Now Act. Help defend our democracy. Support Fair Elections.
