We know the system is broken

For our government to function as it was intended by our founders, the American people must have access to a channel of communication to legislators that is more effective than an email address or office telephone number. When a public policy issue has broad bipartisan support across an overwhelming majority of American voters, we need a way to amplify our voices and communicate our unity with a force that can no longer be ignored in Washington.

We all know that money talks in Washington. Lobbyists, PACs, Super PACs gain the ear of legislators whether we like it or not.  It’s clear that the American people need to yield more power and that power can only come by joining together in sufficient numbers. That is the organization we are seeking to create. One that includes millions of highly engaged voters from the left, right and middle of the political spectrum. From every state and all walks of life. Armed with the facts they need to make informed choices. With the force to shift the balance of power away from large corporations and their Washington lobbyists. United in our action to effect change.

Don’t get mad, get organized.

How does it work?

FIRST ASK THE EXPERTS

Gather information from public policy experts across party lines, compile and share both sides of each issue with our members

THEN ASK OUR MEMBERS

Armed with the background information they need, ask our members to suggest solutions and compromise positions. Vote on the most popular of those ideas.

We'll only fight for the issues:

1. that have the support of a supermajority of
Americans
2. that our financial resources are most likely
to have impact on to effect change

3. where those changes will result in
substantive benefit to the American people

Domestic and Foreign Policy

What is the common ground between gun owners and gun safety advocates? Does the present threat of domestic terrorism justify the loss of life and cost of our current military actions? How do the American people want to deal with those living in our country illegally? Should we open our doors to more scientists and engineers from around the world?

Healthcare, wellness and pharmaceuticals

How do we control spiraling healthcare costs without sacrificing our quality of care? What are the forces that oppose populist change in the healthcare market? How do we move to more transparency in pricing and outcomes? Should we lift the federal ban on the research into long term effects of marijuana use?

Sustainability and the environment

How can we accelerate the development of environmentally sustainable consumer packaging and products? How can we improve the quality of our air and the safety of our food and water sources? What are our best options to reverse the buildup of CO2 and methane in our global atmosphere?

Privacy, technology, education and the Internet

Who owns your personal data and what rights should you have over it? How do we improve access to STEM education for all Americans? Do we need more trade schools and career options for our youth? How do we enforce intellectual property rights in an interconnected world?

Taxation, Finance and Banking

Should we allow major corporations to pay large fines in lieu of prison sentences? Should there be a cap on the amount of executive compensation that a company can deduct on its tax return? Should government insured banks be allowed to put taxpayers at risk again? Should we reinstate the Glass-Steagall Act? Should directors and officers of bankrupt companies be barred from receiving ongoing benefits from them?
