Represent.US

Represent.Us

 We're building a movement to end corruption so America's leaders will represent us. The undue influence of special interests in politics blocks progress on nearly every issue. 

 After decades of failed efforts to fix the problem, it's time to rethink reform. This inspired a group of advocacy experts and attorneys to join forces to create Represent.Us, an unprecedented political campaign to curb corruption by supporting the American Anti-Corruption Act: comprehensive legislation to overhaul elections and lobbying. The Act is constitutional and would utterly transform American politics and policymaking.

 

THIS IS NOT ABOUT RIGHT VS. LEFT
IT'S ABOUT RIGHT VS. WRONG


We're building a movement of millions of Americans from all political stripes: left, right, center and disgusted to demand an end to corruption.

 

On the Act:

 THE AMERICAN
ANTI-CORRUPTION ACT


STOP THE BRIBERY
The Act prevents lobbyists from donating to politicians and/or offering them any deals that could influence policymaking.

END SECRET MONEY
The Act mandates full transparency: disclosure of all political money and “bundlers” who gather contributions for politicians.

PEOPLE OVER PACS
The Act imposes strict limits on PACs, and gives voters an annual $100 tax rebate to be spent supporting the candidate or party of their choice.
