We work to strengthen our democracy to make sure the government represents our interests.
We are leading the charge on making sure our democracy is strong and restructuring how it operates. We push to strengthen our transparency laws so that the public can understand what the government is doing. We fight to end secret laws put into place by the executive branch; and we work to ensure Congress has the ability to resist the pull of special interests.
How we've been fighting:
How do we build a stronger, more capable Congress? The First Branch Forecast is our weekly newsletter, with tons of research and analysis on improving the First Branch of government.
When a disaster strikes, can Congress keep operating? At Continuity of Congress, we round up resources and research about legislative continuity from around the world.
The Congressional Research Service publishes thousands of reports on policymaking questions facing lawmakers. We republish those reports in a user-friendly format.
Congress has a transparency caucus, and we help coordinate its advisory committee. Come watch videos of our panel discussions that cover every issue under the sun.
