Issue One is the leading cross-partisan political reform group in Washington. We unite Republicans, Democrats, and independents in the movement to increase transparency, strengthen ethics and accountability and reduce the role of big money in politics. Issue One’s ReFormers Caucus of more than 200 former members of Congress, governors, and Cabinet officials is the largest bipartisan coalition of its kind ever assembled to advocate for solutions to fix our broken political system

We are committed to making meaningful progress and aspire to improve and change American democracy. We have a healthy disregard for what’s considered impossible, and strive always to think boldly and take risks.

We are an office of energetic optimists who know hard work must be balanced with fun and a relaxed, collegial work atmosphere. We value a positive work-life balance and back that up by offering a compensation and benefits package that is very competitive. We also invest in the professional development and wellbeing of our employees.
