Why It Matters
America’s political system is broken.
Congress is paralyzed by partisan gridlock and cannot address the long-term challenges facing our country. Long-standing ethical norms and laws are being violated. Dark money is playing an ever-increasing role in our politics. Foreign actors are tampering with our elections. Voters feel alienated from their government and question its ability to deliver results for their families and communities.
Now is the time.
We have a historic opportunity to fix our political system so our democracy works for us.
That’s why Issue One is uniting Republicans, Democrats and independents in the movement to increase transparency, strengthen ethics and accountability, and reduce the role of big money in politics.
